|Matsumoto Reiji's Himiko
Matsumoto Reiji, famous for his anime/manga such as Galaxy Express 999, designed a ferry called Himiko. It now runs between Asakusa Azuma-hashi, Hinode, and Odaiba.
Back in August 2004, I was only able to take photos of the ship, but not able to ride on it. Now is the actual ride!
