We took this ride in the evening along the dotonbori canal. It was a short ride of about 20 mins and you get to see all the buildings on both sides of the canal. This ride is covered under the Osaka Amazing pass. We quite...More

This cruise is about 20 minutes along the Dotombori river. We got it free due to our Amazing Pass. Those without the Pass must pay 900 yen or so. If it is free, it is worth it. If you must pay 900 yen, think again....More

Went with no real expectations. This was a nice experience but wouldn't say it's a must do. The ride itself is around 20 minutes and is included in the Osaka Amazing pass. Staff were very friendly and got some nice views over the Dotonbori district....More
