Kachidoki Bridge, Tsukiji

3.7
#255 of 4,789 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.

  • It is a famous bridge that is also the name of the station. From the Katsudoki area, you will pass to the Tsukiji area. This time, I went through the course of Tokyo Machisanpo (walking event). Because the Sumida River is a big river, the bridge was also long. I want to walk and sightseeing in Tokyo! It is recommended for those who think.

  • When I see this bridge, I've come back to my usual place. What year is the major renovation work. It's still going to take a while.

  • The scenery of Katsudoki Bridge is quite good. Day and night are wonderful. It's daytime, and it's cool, but the night light up and the night view are good again.

  • This is a great bridge. I use it to cross from Tsukiji to Kachidoki, which is where my office building is located. The bridge offers a nice view of the Tokyo Tower to one side and the Sky Tree on the other.
  • A quite place and nice view . Close too tsukiji fish MARKET
  • One of many bridges over Sumida river. Nice view, interesting engineering stuff.
  • Calming place with a lot of room for the pedestrian. Also has a very good view. But sunrise is a bit hidden by the buildings, was still able to see it though.
  • A historical bridge very near to Tsukiji Market. A very scenic place worth a visit.
