“The Port of Tokyo Cruise & Sunset Harbor View”

In commemoration of marine day (national holiday), the Bureau of Port and Harbor, Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) is organizing a special tour, “The Port of Tokyo Cruise & Sunset Harbor View” for foreign residents and overseas visitors to share attractive aspects of the Port of Tokyo. This is the first attempt for foreign people to inspect the Port of Tokyo at sunset.
On our inspection ship “Shin Tokyo-Maru,” participants will travel around the harbor and see Rainbow Bridge, Tokyo Waterfront City, the leading foreign-trade container terminals in Japan, among others. During the tour, student volunteers from Musashino University will explain the characteristics and the roles of the Port of Tokyo in 3 languages (Japanese, English and Simplified Chinese).
