The cruise is not excited, it's relaxing and very stable cruise. No worries about sea sickness. The La Santa Maria is a good place for a 45 minutes break at Tempozan Harbor Village area. Complimentary admission with the Osaka Amazing Pass and no need to...More

It is not authentic, but still a good way to see Osaka waterfront. Go with your Osaka Amazing Pass for a free 40 min cruise in Osaka Bay port. Popular with high school kids, good energy.

You can buy a ticket for this along with the Osaka aquarium tickets. The boarding area is clearly marked, people tend to queue up around 15 minutes before departure. The ship itself is a replica of Columbus' famous ship, can't say why but it does...More
