Cruising

A standard sightseeing boat in the aquatic city of Osaka that takes you to Osaka Castle and Nakanoshima! A 40-minute cruise along the Okawa River, which runs through the center of Osaka. The area along the Okawa River is lush with greenery and lined with retro architecture, providing a tasteful view of the city.

As soon as you depart from Osakajo Pier, you will see Osaka Castle and the Osaka City Central Public Hall, which opened in 1918, and other historic buildings. Don't miss the tunnel that was used to bring weapons made at Osaka Castle onto ships!

The historic bridges such as Temmabashi, Yodoyabashi, and Tenjinbashi, which are also the names of places in Osaka, are another attraction. The ceiling of the Aqua-Liner is made of glass, so you can take a closer look at the backside of the bridges. In the boat, you can look up at the city from the same level as the water surface, which is a different feeling.

You can also enjoy the seasonal scenery of cherry blossoms, roses, and fresh greenery. Drinks and ice cream are also available for purchase on board.

    當初是買大阪周遊卷可以免得搭乘,船艙乾淨延途有停靠點,可以選擇離地鐵站近一點的景點,走走逛逛,享受慢遊旅程。

  • 李桂勝

    大白天太陽太大,坐在船艙內會很悶熱。

  • SS Loke
