I have been living beside the Sumida River for over a year but last week was the first time I had the opportunity to travel on it. I took a boat trip from Odaiba to Asakusa with a couple of friends. At times travelling across Tokyo can be stressful, as the trains are so full, but the boat trip was relaxing. There are a couple of different boats and I was disappointed that we just missed the strange silver futuristic looking one. But that just means that I’ll have to try this again the next time we have visitors.
As well as a boat trip we also took the driverless train across the Rainbow Bridge. There are some touristy things that I would be happy to never do again but I still enjoy going across the bridge by train.
