50 Most Extravagant Boats From Around the World
At first glance, this might look like some sort of futuristic submarine. However, it is anything but the case. What you are looking at is the Himiko. And while it is certainly not from around these parts, the folks in Tokyo know it very well. Why? Well, it’s a tourist water bus. That’s right, it’s the equivalent of a shuttle ferry, yet completely enclosed and filled with windows to give you spectacular views. It holds quite a bit of people and offers seating throughout, particularly along the sides so you can get a spectacular view of the area as you drift to your next destination. It would be pretty awesome if we had one of these in the states, but you have to get your passport and head to Japan for the experience as it stands. Oh yeah, and don’t let your buddies argue with you. If they try to tell you that it is a submarine, politely identify the windshield wipers. You can see one resting towards the front of the vessel in the pic. I’m no engineering expert, but last time I checked submarines do not require windshield wipers. This is a tourist boat/bus, and it’s pretty freaking awesome!
