At a glance: Having a dinner together is one of the standards for a date. But if you want to make it an unforgettable romantic experience why don’t you have it on a Yakatabune in Tokyo. These traditional ships offer multiple hour luxury dinner cruises to the Tokyo Bay. You get on board on many of the little ports on one of the canals of Tokyo. On the way to your destination, you will enjoy a traditional Japanese dinner made up of multiple courses and free refills at the bar. The dinner traditionally has a main course made up of different kinds of seafood and vegetable tempura. But there are many other delicacies you will enjoy. Once you have arrived at your destination and the sun has set you will be allowed onto the roof of the boat where you can enjoy the spectacular views of the Rainbow Bridge and the lights of the Tokyo skyline from the water. There is nothing more romantic than standing in the breeze arm in arm and listening to the sound of the water while looking out over the millions of lights of one of the biggest cities in the world. To make your experience even more unforgettable I recommend renting a traditional Yukata (a summer Kimono) for the day. This will make for amazingly beautiful pictures within the boat and also on the top with the skyline in the background. Guaranteed to stay in your memory for many years to come.
Highlights of this romantic activity include:
♥ Delicious dinner with a free refill on drinks in a beautiful traditional Japanese setting.
♥ Amazing views of Tokyo’s Rainbow Bridge and the skyline by night.
♥ The sunsets over hills of grape vines! Need I say more?
♥ Unforgettable picture opportunities throughout the evening (especially if you wear a traditional Yukata). Budget: $$S ($ = budget $$ = Medium $$$ = Luxury) Address: All over Tokyo.
