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

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

This bridge connects Tsukiji with Tsukishima. When we were there for a visit, my husband and I would walk over the bridge every night in search of food at the Monja street. We thought it was a very pretty bridge that was lit up at night with a good view of the river and a good place for a nice... More

The bridge is best seen from the river as most cruises pass under it but it is just another bridge quite modern ok if you are a structural engineer but most tourists wouldn't give it a second glance
