The sightseeing ship Himiko was designed by Leiji Matsumoto, a manga artist known for Space Battleship Yamato and other works. It is popular among couples, children and adults alike.

Three characters from “The Galaxy Express 999”, Tetsuro, Mater and the conductor, explain the scenery of the Sumida River.

You can also enjoy the view of Tokyo Bay, including the Odaiba area.

There is an observation window on the ceiling that allows you to look out at the sky.

The tour takes 45 minutes and it’s a convenient way to travel between Odaiba to the Tokyo Skytree and the Asakusa area.
