Panorama TOKYO : Komagata  

The tower building symbolized a beer mug and the big art object of a flame design at Asakusa, have been new sights on the Sumida Riverside. The object designed by a French artist is 44 m in length. You'll get a better view of the object on the riverside by the Komagata Bridge of the steel-made arch, which is 250 m below the Azuma Bridge at Asakusa.

It's also interesting to watch the traces of boats passing by the bridge, to run away from the bustle of Kaminarimon Gate and Nakamise Street at Asakusa. If you want to cruise on the river, you can take a sightseeing boat for Tokyo Port. You can enjoy making a tour of bridge-watching along the river.
