Yakatabune can be enjoy differently in each different season: the sight of cherry blossoms along the river in spring, fireworks in summer, clear sky view in autumn, and Japanese style party in winter.

Tokyo is often considered as a giant city with leading high technologies, however riding Yakatabune makes you realize how historically people in Tokyo have been living with river. This experience will make you enjoy the nature in a new way, where you can enjoy both enjoy both technology and historical aspect of Tokyo.
