Taking a dinner cruise on a yakatabune party boat in Tokyo is one thing that I have not done as yet. The opportunity (or it just didn't cross my mind while there). Perhaps on my next trip to Japan I'll try one out.

What's a yakatabune boat?

An article in Japan Today explains:
TOKYO - So, you’re exploring Tokyo on a humid summer day, but looking for a way to do it without the crowded streets, packed trains and sweaty bodies. Now, picture yourself enjoying sashimi and tempura while downing a few cold beers. Oh, and you’re barefoot, too. On a boat. In the middle of Tokyo Bay. Welcome to yakatabune (houseboat) cruising, one of the highlights of summer. 
If you’re new to these all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-drink waterway cruises, this guide has everything you need to book the best tour for you based on location, price, group type, season and more.
