The Sumida line connects Hinode-Sanbashi and Asakusa by way of the Hamarikyu gardens with a 40-minute boat ride on the Sumida River. The stretch between Asakusa and Hinode-Sanbashi is traversed by twelve bridges whose design and color delight the eye. The guide will explain famous and historic sites on the river banks from where you can see how the old Edo Tokyo still exists hidden inside the modern city. Headphones with explanations in English are available.

  • A cruise on a boat is always a pleasure for me. But here I think that the landscape is not very nice. In addition, for me, the weather was not so good so it made it worse. I think it's more enjoyable to go on foot and follow the Sumida river.
