Tokyo Bay Summer Evening Cruise & Tokyo Tower “the Milky Way Illumination”
30 June – 29 August 2017 (a total of 12 days)
Tokyo Tower / Tokyo Bay
This summer, wear a yukata and have beautiful night views of Tokyo from the sky and the sea. A special tour bus will operate to connect two most popular summer events for the lovers of the Japanese attire.
The Tokyo Bay Summer Evening Cruise (30 June – 9 October 2017) runs a 100-minute cruise passing near Rainbow Bridge, Odaiba, Haneda Airport and Tokyo Gate Bridge. Feel a sea breeze and cool off the heat, with a pretty night view of Tokyo Bay.
The Milky Way Illumination (1 June – 3 September 2017) is an illumination that wraps around Tokyo Tower every summer in romantic shades of blue stars. Visitors bathe in light at its Main Observatory, feeling as though in the Milky Way, and walk up the exterior staircases lit in blue.
◆ Free bus ride and free illumination for yukata lovers
A sightseeing bus will take you to experience the two in the same evening. To be eligible for the special offer, wear a yukata for the event, be ready to update status on SNS and to accept media photography. The bus ride and the admission for Tokyo Tower’s Main Observatory will be offered for free. The cruise will cost you 1,600 yen, which is 1,000 yen less than the regular price.
On 30 June, moreover, all three (the bus, the Tokyo Tower illumination and the cruise) will be free, if you are lucky to be chosen in the “follow-and-retweet” campaign at the event’s official Twitter account (@ nouryousen).
Reservation is required for the cruise. The event tickets will be distributed at the Takeshiba Passenger Terminal to 50 persons on the respective days of the event, on a first-come-first-served basis.
