Shinminato sightseeing cruise

Experience the appealing atmosphere of the Uchikawa River

  • Spend some relaxing time taking in the atmosphere of the Uchikawa.

How about a slow-paced cruise through Shinminato? Feel the adventure of embarking on a short trip! Expore the harbor town on the "Uchikawa course", or take a short loop around the bay on the "Toyama Shinminato course". In the summer, there is even a course which allows you to watch fireworks from the bay! The catered cruises are also perfect for parties; choose from menus which suit any occasion, such as the "sushi boat", "beer boat" and "kani-crab boat". An assortment of boat types are also available, including vessels with stained-glass windows and roofs. From the unique vantage point offered by the cruise, you can see precious views of the Tateyama Mountain Range and the Noto Peninsula. You will also get a taste of the atmospheric Uchikawa river, which is known as "Japan's Venice" because of its 12 beautiful bridges.
