Scenery like nowhere else: Route with a view of Mt. Fuji behind Miho-no-Matsubara

Mt. Fuji & Shimizu Port Cruise

Course Guide

Enjoy Shimizu Port on 2different courses!

Course Guide

This sightseeing ship makes leisurely cruises around Shimizu Port, which is said to be one of the three most beautiful ports in Japan.
We offer two courses: a circuit course, and a mini-sightseeing course that allows passengers to get on and off at the Miho Platform. This sightseeing ship with a view of Mt. Fuji behind Miho-no-Matsubara, just like a scene from an ukiyo-e woodblock print, is truly unique to Shimizu Port.
On afternoon cruises, you can enjoy a “Funaben Lunch” and in autumn and winter you can cruise alongside black-headed gulls overwintering in Japan. Children can try the “Kid’s Captain Costume” experience (free of charge), that gives them the chance to wear a captain’s uniform onboard the ship.

The Bay Promenade

The Bay Promenade has an eye-catching hull, painted in rainbow colors. It is used a sightseeing ship for the Mt. Fuji & Shimizu Port Cruise.
The vessel has three floors, is stabilized with a catamaran hull, and the guest cabins on the first and second decks are fully enclosed in glass windows, making them feel more spacious. You can relax and enjoy the scenery from a space with tables and seats separated by partitions.
The third floor features the pride of the ship, a panorama deck with a 360˚ view. It offers views of Mt. Fuji, Miho-no-Matsubara, Nihondaira, and even the Izu Peninsula far off in the distance.
