After your sightseeing in Asakusa, enjoy a cruise with the "space ship" "Hotaluna"

If you visit Japan for the first time, Asakusa is surely a must visit spot in Tokyo.

Asakusa

After your sightseeing in Asakusa, we recommend a ride in the “space ship”. It’s not a joke, seriously.

The space ship we rode was the Hotaluna” designed by Leiji Matsumoto, the famous creator of space battle ship Yamato, Galaxy express 999 and more.

We purchased our ticket 30 minutes before departure, but if you want to ride a certain space ship on a certain time, online reservations maybe are better.
