Wonder Cruise boarding locations

A. Dotonbori 2

Get on the Wonder Cruise here to cruise the Dotonbori river right in front of the Glico running man neon sign! The Dotonbori 2 Wonder Cruise boarding point is about 2-3 minutes walk from bus stop 6 Dotonbori Teppan-Jinya and  here you can visit DOTON PLAZA for tax free shopping or take a stroll along Dotonbori shopping street and river.

Points how to find the Dotonbori 2 cruise stop
-If you are standing in front of the Glico man sign and facing the sign, turn to your left and walk along the river on the same side as the Glico Man sign. The cruise stop is about 5 min walk away. Including the bridge next to the Glico man (Ebisu bridge) you will walk under three bridges and just before you reach bridge four (Nihonbashi bridge), there is the Dotonbori 2 cruise stop. Unfortunately we are not allowed to put up a sign there, it is just a small gate with a padlock, but the boat will always stop to check for passengers.
