The only ferry in Tokyo, 'Yagiri-no-watashi'
operating since the Edo Period.

Area Map

Shibamata
Shibamata has prospered as a temple town of the Taishakuten temple. With more than two hundred years' history, Taishakuten is always full of tourists, welcoming with sculptures and a beautiful, gallery-style garden. Along the road from Shibamata Station to the temple there are many traditional shops and stores reminiscent of a film set, including the famous dango (skewered rice flour dumplings). At Shibamata you may want to try the only ferry in Tokyo, 'Yagiri-no-watashi', which has been operating since the Edo Period (beginning of 17th century to the middle of 19th century). It's just a five-minute boat ride to the opposite shore of Chiba Prefecture, but the slow ride on the river with a gentle breeze will provide you a relaxing and refreshing experience.
