3.6/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Triumph come out well in the drama I'm a bridge, futtsu-the bridge. Go to tsukishima across time, and what were gonna do when you get across. The later is recommended for couples. Since few people. Cold though.

  • Great views from the top of the bridge. You can see stunning views if circular Highway No.2 bridge was opened, should be. I want to open soon

  • I think unique viewing point of the kachidoki bridge is two. One is the signal lights at the top of the movement, top of the bridge. That is in the middle of the bridge signal lights not only here in Japan. Due to the opening and closing stop 11/29 0/1970 (1970), is currently not lit [triumph bridge Museum] is recommended to be stopped because you can determine the operational state in the model with opening and closing the gate for pedestrian lights and ships for signalling lamps. Another is the ornamentation on the roadway side of the bridge. It is recommended that admire the decoration of kachidoki bridge across the walk and open/closed status of the kachidoki bridge is a decorative design and landscape of the Sumida River is like. The 0/2007 (2007) June kachidoki bridge is in the country and an important cultural asset is provided in.
