Zeppelin airship takes off in Tokyo
Nippon Airship Corporation’s Tokyo and Yokohama Zeppelin NT (new technology) cruises now take off from Harumi in central Tokyo.
Thanks to the closer and more convenient departure point, the Tokyo Course cruise time is now 40 minutes, compared with 90 minutes when cruises departed from Honda Airport in neighbouring Saitama Prefecture. The cruise fare is also down from 126,000 yen to 63,000 yen for the day and twilight cruises, and 68,000 yen for the night cruise, making a ride in the world famous Zeppelin airship accessible to more people.
The Tokyo Course takes in the landmarks of Tokyo including Tokyo Tower, Roppongi Hills, Meiji Shirine Outer Garden, Tokyo Dome, Asakusa (Tokyo Sky Tree), Ginza and Rainbow Bridge from 500 metres up.
Nippon Airship’s Zeppelin NT is one of only three operational passenger airships in the world and the only airship in Asia.
