(180+ reviews on the web)
Bridge Tourist Spot
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. Before you head to Tokyo, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Tokyo itinerary builder, to make sure you see all that Tokyo has to offer, including Kachidoki Bridge.

  • a bridge with a nice view over the river. close to tsukiji. in the evening there is a park below where you can sit and watch the boats go by
  • Bridge between tsukiji and kachidoki. A nice spot to see the Tokyo tower and skytree.

  • This Bridge is related to Two of the Famous Anime Kochikame!!! That's why I love it!!!
