Tombori River Cruise
This is a 20-minute cruise of the Dotonbori canal. You’ll learn about hidden highlights and the backstory to famous spots with your guides, the Osaka Guide Crew.
This 20-minute mini-cruise is a delightful “stroll” along the waterway that’s easy to work into your schedule. Come out on the water and let your breath be taken away by a brand-new view of Dotonbori, packed with some of Naniwa’s most well-known sights. The boat departs from the Tazaemonbashi Bridge Boat Dock.
