This tour is to watch Sakura from a small boat. We limit our cruises to small, private groups, which enables us to fully enjoy Sakura viewing in a safe and fun environment.  

We invite you to bring your own food and drinks on board. There are some gorgeous Bento lunch boxes and traditional Japanese sweets available around the jetty where we set sail from.
