10th FCCJ Yakatabune Cruise, 30 August


FCCJ Yakatabune Summer Cruise was held this year for the 10th time. Like last year, our member companies Finnair and Finntour sponsored the cruise and made it affordable for all participants. We enjoyed first a cruise down the Sumida River all the way Odaiba while enjoying great food, drinks and of course good company.

At Odaiba there was a chance to go up to the deck to see the night scenery of Odaiba, Rainbow Bridge and Tokyo across the bay. While continuing the cruise freshly fried tempura was served, and we also had a lottery with great prizes from our sponsors Finnair (with prizes also from Finnair’s codeshare partners Japan Airlines and British Airways) and Finntour. At Asakusa there was again a chance to go to the upper deck to see the sights, Tokyo Sky Tree was as popular photo target as ever.
