Please note

Voucher information: Sorry, but we will need you to print a paper version of your booking voucher (we're working on changing this).  At this time no refund can be given for customers without a printed copy of their voucher.

The cruise will cancel during adverse weather conditions such as strong wind, rain etc.

Maximum capacity of 12 people on the Cruise.

How to find the Dotonbori 2 cruise stop: If you are standing in front of the Glico Man sign and facing the sign, turn to your left and walk along the river on the same side as the Glico Man sign. The cruise stop is about 5 minutes walk away. Including the bridge next to the Glico man (Ebisu bridge) you will walk under three bridges and just before you reach bridge four (Nihonbashi bridge), there is the Dotonbori 2 cruise stop. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to put up a sign there, it is just a small gate with a padlock, but the boat will always stop to check for passengers.

Buses with roofs are used on rainy days and during adverse conditions.

Our local partners do everything in their power to ensure the tours runs to schedule.  However, Osaka is a functioning city and weather, traffic and events may occasionally cause disruption.
