Osaka Castle/Dotombori Tour
Currently, AQUA mini "Osaka Castle, Dotombori tour" service is unavailable during the winter season.
Service is due to be resumed on April 28, 2018.

The new Osaka Castle/Dotombori Tour links Osakajo Pier [Osaka Castle Park] and Minatomachi Pier [Minatomachi River Place] via Tazaemonbashi Pier which is located on the Tombori River Walk (the premier shopping district on Dotombori River). Our two new ships, the Water Capital/Aqua Mini, depart hourly from both Osakajo and Minatomachi Pier. This one-way 50-minute cruise offers the opportunity to enjoy the unique scenery of Osaka, Japan’s Water Capital: Okawa River near verdant Osaka Castle Park, the city’s ancient waterways, Higashiyokobori River and its massive floodgate, and Dotombori River with in famous Osaka landscape stretching out on either shore.
