Cruising Around Osaka on the Ofune-Camome   御舟かもめで大阪めぐり

To take in the night landscape of Osaka by water, I boarded the Ofune-Camome boat for a private cruise yesterday from a dock located just a short walk away from Yodoyabashi Station.  With various course routes available at all hours of the day, this 10 person boat is perfect for private occasions.  In addition, riders are allowed to bring their own food and drinks on board which adds to the attractiveness of Camome.  As reservations are required, please visit the web site here in Japanese for more information or email the captain directly at  

As we head into the thick of fall and soon winter, it may be best to wait until next spring to experience Osaka's many rivers in this light.  But for those who are eager to get out onto the water especially during the evening hours, be sure to dress appropriately as it does get chilly.
