Kachidoki Bridge, Chuo

(3.8/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • It was my favorite childhood cartoon "here Katsushika-Ku kameari Park Mae hashutsujo" well kachidoki bridge had emerged. The likely opening like Reuther in the Middle when I pass by. Stop the car during that time. You can't see the seams is sometimes getting in the car, originally opened as. It is like walking slowly. Inching in over the bridge and observe fast.

  • Bridge between tsukiji and kachidoki. A nice spot to see the Tokyo tower and skytree.
  • Love the way it glows at night surrounded by millions of city lights.
  • It's a bridge next to the fish market.. it does a job..
  • This Bridge is related to Two of the Famous Anime Kochikame!!! That's why I love it!!!
  • A special bridge to drive or walk over, particularly in the night, when the buildings and the bridge itself ate colorfully illuminated. Good photo spot.
