We had an en excellent evening on the cruise. The staff were fantastic and the Kabuki actors were amazing. They were so friendly and inclusive they made everyone feel special. We all had the vegetarian menu which was really good. Even my two sons 8 & 10 had a great evening and normally the only thing they enjoy is electronic! Thank you to the whole crew. We will definitely recommend you and next time we have visitors we will be sure to come again.

We went for the Saturday night show from 7 to 8:30 (boarding at 6:30)... We didn't order the food set, but food and drinks can be ordered on board: 1 cocktail is 500 yen and all-you-can-drink is 1500 yen. Tickets can be booked online (pay at the convenience store) or they can be bought at the pier that's a 2-minute walk from Hinode Station before boarding. Their boarding building is the building next to Symphony Cruise.

Surprisingly, there were only 4 customers on the whole boat including us, so at first we thought it might be lame, but it turned out to be great fun and even included an interactive game. There were only 3 actors and, to be honest, it was a bit awkward at times because they were so few customers, but we had a really good time nevertheless because they obviously gave it their all! There was song and dance and some over-the-top but entertaining acting. It helped that the other couple was very drunk so they added to the hilarity of it all.

The show's all in Japanese but the staff did attempt to try to drop in a couple of English words whenever they could - even if you don't totally understand Japanese, their enthusiasm and energy will probably still be quite amusing. The view from the boat was fairly nice - can go out and look if you want.

This was a fantastic night out, the boat was great and the show was brilliant, very entertaining, the performers were very friendly and spent the evening, when not performing chatting to guests, and even getting us to join them in a dance on the top deck. The food was traditional Japanese, I would imagine if you did not like raw fish then you would not enjoy it, however, this was fine for us. I would definitely recommend this evening as it is great fun.

We wanted a cruise on Tokyo Bay to see the city from the water. Found this tour and it turned out to be an amazing time. The boat is absolutely beautiful and laid out well with great decks for viewing up top, and great views from inside the ship as well.

The staff and performers were beyond amazing, friendly helpful and put on a great show. We were on a sunset cruise with less than 20 people on board the performers still delivered an energetic and fun show as if there were 200 or more. They were also very helpful in identifying landmarks and answering questions.

The food was what you would expect anywhere in Japan with regards to fresh seafood with beef and chicken as well. We had an ample variety and mix of portions that was more than we could ever finish between two people. The cruise also included an all-you-can-drink package that offered beer, wine, and highballs (this is a mix you will find at most restaurants and bars in Tokyo, and offers a good mix of options). The ship is set up with multiple bars, and we never waited for a drink.

In all, we found the boat was beautifully appointed, the food was great, drinks were great, and the staff was incredibly attentive. The performers were decked out in great costumes, were very approachable and friendly, and put on an energetic and fun show. If you’re looking for a sophisticated gourmet dinner cruise, this may not be for you. But we found it to be one of the most entertaining and fun things we did during our stay in Tokyo. Well done!!

We highly recommend this activity. The food was super, the entertainment was fun and the boat and sights were great. Only issues were poor signage to find the start point and very little English spoken on the boat.

I came on this cruise as part of a group. This colorful boat cruises through Tokyo Bay during the day and in the evening offers a dinner cruise. We were seated an low tables with large platters of meat and vegetables. After dinner, traditionally dressed singers and dancers sang a modern version of a kabuki style show. We had time to get out on deck to see the sights as we cruised under bridges and along the waterfront. It was a fun evening out.

Had a great time on the Samurai cruise. We were the only passengers so it was a private show! The hosts are great company, great to speak with and their show was an awesome new experience and look into japanese culture.
Highly recomend for anyone new to Tokyo and looking to try great food and great culture !

We were travelling with our 21-month-old daughter so were quite anxious about how she would cope with it. However, Judith sorted us out with fantastic seats so she could see everything, and the performers and team couldn't do enough to make sure everyone had a great time! A VERY good time was had by all and we would thoroughly recommend them. At the end there was even a shuttle bus back to the metro. Thank you very much for a lovely evening.
