Party Boats

Boat Parking Posted by Hello

This photo was taken near Hamamatsucho Station, which is located in the Minato-ku area of Tokyo.

The boats in the photo that have lanterns hanging on them are party boats. This type of boat is called a “Yakatabune” (pleasure boat or houseboat.) It common to see them zipping up and down the rivers of Tokyo during the summer.

To see more information about Yakatabune party boats take a look at this story.
