No words to explain the view from Symphony Cruise. It is an excellent ship and staff are very friendly and accommodative. Its a Photographer paradise. It will give a complete satisfaction after the cruise.

Simply the best thing we did on our whole trip to Tokyo. This was our final night in Tokyo and from start to finish this was simply awesome. The 5-course meal was top-notch, the cruise was super smooth and the views were fantastic. The boat was amazing. We even had a pianist playing during dinner. For the money I couldn't... More

I purchased the Italian steak option. The food was very below average taste-wise. If you're interested in seeing Tokyo lit up at night, I'd suggest going to the Tokyo Tower or Ferris Wheels directly.

Overall the cruise exceeded my expectations. The best moments were spent out of doors on the top deck of the boat. Viewing the colorful lights of night-time Tokyo -- bridges, buildings, ferris wheels, towers, etc. -- was wonderful and memorable. In addition, it was interesting to see Tokyo Bay -- such an important part of the city and its history,... More

We took the Symphony Lunch cruise of 2 hours from Hinode terminal. This was covered in our Hatobus package. The cruise was an experience. Beautiful well decorated luxury cruise. The food in the restaurant inside the cruise was delicious. The buffet lunch was well spread with both Japanese and Western cuisine. Enjoyed the pork dish and grilled fish the most.... More

It was a dinner cruise and we arrived around 6:30pm. We soon boarded and were taken up to the 2nd Floor whereupon they took us to a dining room, with a full width balcony... More

It was supposed to be a sunset dinner cruise but it rained the whole afternoon. We were hoping it would stop just before sunset but it did not. Anyway, we were at the well-appointed terminal before 4PM & in no time we were boarding & promptly departed for the cruise. We were led to the beautiful, luxuriously furnished dining room... More

I recently took the sunset dinner cruise and was quite impressed. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. They are always ready to assist with taking pictures. Food is good and nicely presented. The sun set behind Mt. Fugi and it was clear enough for a good view. Night time Tokyo skyline is unforgettable. The house white and red wines... More

Tokyo Bay dinner cruise that was about 2.5 hours of cruising and a five course set menu (appetiser/soup/entree/main/dessert). My girlfriend and I had arranged this as a special dinner after having enjoyed a river cruise in Thailand a few years ago. We arranged this through an airline activities website and so met a guide at the Hinode Station who brought... More

Staying in Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
