With Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo’s Nihonbashi Boat Cruise package, you can view the city’s intriguing neighbourhoods at a leisurely, luxurious pace. The one-hour trip cuts through the capital’s historical and cultural heart, starting in the fascinating commercial district of Nihonbashi, once a major mercantile centre during the Edo period and the location of Mandarin Oriental. The boat wends its way along the imposing Sumida River to the dramatic ports of Tokyo Bay. On board the 12-passenger limousine boat, complete with a glass roof that opens to the sky, a tour guide will explain the landmarks while you sample traditional Japanese snacks. Back at the hotel, you can also soak up the magnificent city panorama during breakfast at K’shiki or the Oriental Lounge as part of your one-night stay in a suite. Choose from early check-in from 1pm or late checkout until 2pm, and enjoy complimentary access to the heat and water experiences (vitality pool, amethyst crystal steam room, sky view sauna and rain showers) in The Spa as you look out over Nihonbashi, 37 floors below.
