Up for some entertainment fit for a shogun in a yakatabune (old Japanese houseboat), complete with tatami floors and horigotatsu (sunken) chairs? Then catch the Yakatabune Funasei from Shinagawa. The trip takes 2h30m to 2h45m and costs ¥10,800, which includes sashimi and tempura with plenty of sake to wash it all down. For privately booked tours, the company will hire a kimono-clad geisha to be your hostess during the cruise and perform songs with the traditional instrument shamisen. Karaoke is free of charge and we recommend wearing a yukata during warmer weather.
