The Aqua Liner has become a popular tourist activity in Osaka. As a water city, Osaka is home to hundreds of bridges and river of all sizes, making it well suited for a boat trip. The Aqua Liner mainly runs between Osakajo Pier, Hachiken-yahama Pier, Yodoyabashi Pier, and OAP Pier, taking visitors on a tour of the city center from Osaka Castle to Nakanoshima. The tour is even more spectacular in cherry blossom season when cherry blossoms line the banks of the shore.
