Kachidoki Bridge, Chuo

3.8
#224 of 2,151 in Things to do in Tokyo
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.

    On the outskirts of the Tsukiji fish market. Bridge across the Sumida River. Look at value, I think much more. Cross the tsukishima. 跳nemasenn now, but unique form. Sometimes used in the drama.

    It is a common bridge arch. Bridge just because I used to open and close the central part of the bridge was famous, but doesn't work now. No special viewing points. Views from the outside is good inside the place was doing the opening and closing of the bridge is seen as not recommended.

    Let me start by saying that the bridge is visible from one of the many skyscrapers, but if you want to see and realize its amplitude, it is better to take one of the ferries of the Tokyo Cruise departing from Ginza from Hama Rikyu although you have to pay admission to gardens that still worth it. There are also other ferry and you are better off watching the departures on the internet. Tickets can be purchased on site and the stations are also called in English

    Bridge between tsukiji and kachidoki. A nice spot to see the Tokyo tower and skytree.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
