In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
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.
