Suishou no Fune (English: Crystal Ship) is a Japanese psychedelic rock band formed by guitarists Pirako Kurenai and Kageo in July 1999. In 2002, Toshihiko Isogai joined on drums and the band added Doronco on bass a few months later. Also joined was Tail. Since then membership has revolved.

Their music is largely improvisatory twin guitar explorations with vocals. They have jammed with legendary noise guitarist Keiji Haino numerous times, starting with an "awesome" 3 hour session in 2004. They have toured the US and Europe many times and released many CDs some on the Holy Mountain label. Their new CD is being produced by Michael Gibbons of Bardo Pond.[when?] September 25, 2011 "You Tears" was released by "P.S.F RECORDS".
