The Sumida River is the main, and the largest river that flows through the capital city. It is crossed by 26 bridges throughout and flows through 7 districts of Tokyo, including Sumida and Arakawa.

The river didn't have this course, but was diverted to prevent flooding.

You can take a cruise on the river up until Asakusa, if you can go at night, because the view of the lit up city is just beautiful.

Address:
Hinode Pier,
Tokyo, Japan

Price:
Cruise fee is ¥720 (one way only).

Opening Hours:
Cruises are organized daily, check their website.
