[Osaka Suijo Bus Aqua-Liner]
Gaze at the cityscapes of Osaka from the river
"Aqua-Liner", a water bus, cruises around the Okawa River (former Yodo River). The bus goes around popular landmarks such as the red-brick Japan Mint in Osaka, a retro building of Osaka City, the Central Public Hall, and the symbol of Osaka, the Osaka Castle. The tour is full of new discoveries when viewed from the water from a different perspective. The bus departs hourly from four piers. It is crowded with people in spring, when cherry blossoms adorn the riversides.
