Sumida River CruiseApprox. Time: 1 hours
Activity Level: Easy to Moderate

The Sumida is evolving into one of Tokyo's most satisfying and soothing attractions due in part to a great effort to beautify the riverside, thus enhancing the inherent charm of a trip on the water through a national capital.

The best way to see what the Sumida is all about is to take a water bus from/to Asakusa from/to Hinode Pier. Most people do this one-way, as part of an excursion to Asakusa.

Many Tokyoites enjoy this trip, as it offers a refreshing perspective on well-known landmarks ashore (it's easy to forget Tokyo's a bay city).
