Sail on the large passenger ship, “Salvia Maru,” for a memorable 90-minute night cruise in Tokyo Bay. With a tradition dating back to 1950, this event has become a summer staple, blending the captivating Tokyo Bay night view, delicious food and drink, and exciting music events.

Fares and Discounts

The ticket fare for adults is a pocket-friendly 1,500 yen. However, if you love dressing up, put on your Yukata from Sunday to Thursday to avail the ‘Yukata Discount’ that slashes 500 yen off the adult ticket price.

But, remember, Jinbei and Samue attire don’t qualify for the discount so no half-stepping.

Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Don’t miss out on the food corner onboard offering sushi, yakitori, yakisoba, sweets, and drinks, payable via electronic money, credit cards, or food tickets. The ship operates normally even in rainy weather, except for the Top Terrace, ensuring that nothing dampens your festive mood.
