Azuma-bashi Bridge 吾妻橋

Walk across one of Asakusa’s most underrated attractions

Stretching across the Sumida River and connecting the Sensoji Temple area with Tokyo Skytree, the Azuma-bashi Bridge is one of Asakusa’s most historic icons. The first incarnation of the bridge was built in 1774, however the bridge has gone through a number of reconstructions over the years. The version you see today was built in 1931. Soak up the beauty of Asakusa in spring as the area’s 300 cherry trees bloom into life, bathing the riverside in the soft pink blossoms.
