Kachidoki Bridge at night.

Not much you can say about a bridge. It is nice to see at night with all the lit up boats going underneath on the Sumida river. I do know it was once a draw bridge and when you... read more

This one is just at the back of Ginza and a typical steel bridge over the Sumida River just near the Tsukiji Market so if you are visiting the market go a few meters more to the river and bridge.If you have not sen the Sumida river then this is your opportunity.It is not special.

If you walk 15-20 minutes from Kabuki Theater, you will reach this bascule bridge(similar to Tower Brigde in London) and enjoy scenery of the Sumida River, part of Tsukiji Market and neibouring bridges. It was built in 1929 but the bridge movement was stopped in 1980.

In the 70's the Kachidoki bridge would open to allow tall ships to travel up the bay. For over 25 years now this has not been done and i am not sure if the motors and cables are intact. Kachidoki bridge is about a 12 minutes walk from Ginza 4-chome and connects Ginza to Harumi. On the Ginza side, just... More

Travelled across this bridge while moving around Tokyo during our trip. There isn't anything special about it really although it was early morning and so the sun shone through the girders which would have made a nice architecture photo had we been able to stop

Not much you can say about a bridge. It is nice to see at night with all the lit up boats going underneath on the Sumida river. I do know it was once a draw bridge and when you walk across it moves in the middle. Also in one of the first Godzilla movies it was destroyed. Kevin

It's a bridge. It got us from one side to the other with a minimum of hassle and was quite willing to work in very early morning. Friendly enough but doesn't talk. Seriously is a fairly generic steel bridge. Don't go out of your way

I wouldn't say the bridge is an architectural stunner but I do know that at one point the bridge was able to open.

There are many bridges between asakusa and ginza. And like this one, i do not see anything special for a tourist to go there.

As bridges go, it serves its primary function exquisitely, in particular the distance from the water is good. Lighting appears ample, although we did visit during the day. Many people (on foot, bicycle and motor vehicle seem to use this bridge to get across the river. We also saw some people running across and a Lamborghini driving across, which gave... More
