2. These roofed boats were once used as entertainment facilities for aristocrats and feudal lords from the Heian to the Edo eras.

3. Kashikiri-bune (reserved boat) is for group parties while noriai-bune (shared boat) is open to individual customers.

4. Yakatabune travel between ferry points along the Sumida River, stopping at Hamamatsu-cho and Shinagawa, and most round-trip cruises include the Odaiba area. The cruises to view spring sakura (cherry blossom trees) and summer fireworks are very popular.
