#11 Tokyo Bay Cruise

A couple of weeks ago, I went on a cruise in Tokyo bay. Well, using the word cruise makes it sound kind of posh ... which it definitely wasn’t.
Anyway ... the boat was a regular passenger ferry with space for almost 2000 people. We stood in a queue and started boarding at about quarter to seven.
Tickets cost 2500 yen.

The trip lasted two hours and it was all-you-can-drink beer, wine, shochu, oolong tea and juice.

I enjoyed hanging out on the top deck most of the time.
We went under (the) Rainbow Bridge.
We saw a plane land at Haneda Airport.
And we saw this thing which looked like the moon, but was actually a sign.

Downstairs people were really getting into the music.
They’d had obviously made the most of the free-flowing beer.

And then before I knew it, the DJs were saying goodbye.
And someone with a loudspeaker was telling us to get off the boat.
On the way off, lots of people took photos with the yukata dancers.
And Hikawa told me what he thought of the event.


* It's not supposed to be the Rainbow Bridge - I accidently said the.
