Take a walk across Kachidoki Bridge, the first and only drawbridge across the Sumida River. Built in 1940 to commemorate the country's victory in the battle of Lushun, the double-leaf, counterweighted construction opened for the last time in 1970. Today, you can walk across, traveling between Tsukiji and Tsukishima. Consider stopping into the adjacent museum dedicated to the bridge, featuring artifacts and footage of its operation. At night, the illuminated bridge makes an attractive sight.

  • A bridge over the Sumida River. It seems that it was leaping until 1970. You can see TokyoTower and Skytree.
  • You can watch the usual river cruise ships, when you get tired walk across to have a meal at Denny's nearby. Also gives quick access to the Moon Island (Tsukishima) and famous monja street.
