The Waterside

sumida river

I arrive at the Sumida River after walking from Asakusa Kaminari-mon Gate for around ten minutes. The Sumida River may be the river which people in Tokyo love most.

A big fireworks display is held on the both sides of this river every summer. Boats for the sightseeing go up and down the river. And the people enjoy viewing cityscapes of Tokyo which extend on the both side of the river.

Across the bridge, I go to the Tokyo Sky Tree of the highest communications tower in the world.

This picture shows the view of Tokyo bay seen from Odaiba in the direction of  the center of Tokyo.
It was warm winter afternoon. I felt that  the spring is near here in Tokyo, because the  warm breeze blew from nowhere.

There were few people.
But the fountains were shining in the evening sunset.

There is an art object on the  water beside a building of an excellent beer company.
It is a refreshing place with an atmosphere that makes us feel everything in order.

It is Ikebukuro West Gate Park here that  is famous for novel and TV drama.
This fountain that people gather around in the summer  seems to be slightly lonely  in winter.

Shinjiku Gyoen changes its face in every season. This is a scenery of the park in late autumn. We can see the wabi and sabi, Japanese sense of beauty in it.

This is the waterside of Hamarikyu. The sea bus of the Sumida river comes in and goes out through the gate. The Sumida river runs outside of the gate.



Toyosu is one of the water front town, which is reclaimed land. The photo was taken in the place called Urban Dock, where people can ride on water bus.



Yokohama is located near City of Tokyo around 30minutes away by train. The port of Yokohama is a part of Tokyo Bay.
