himiko. waterbus.



The Himiko Waterbus is 114 tons of pure style that makes me wish I lived in Tokyo. This Nemo-esque beauty was "produced by" Japanese cartoonist Leiji Matsumoto and currently plies the waters off the capital of Japan. It's got everything you'd want in a design that's "appealing to children," including 3D windows and floor panels that light up (you know, so it looks even more awesome at night!). It's named after Queen Himiko, "the first recognized independent lady in Japanese history."
