Kachidoki Bridge, Chuo
(3.5/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • Only the name is the bridge to become famous. The view is good. Stand as the middle of the bridge and Tokyo Tower – and can see the sky both left and right.
