Tsukiji and Sumida River at Night

Posted in Places by tokyobling on April 24, 2012

Awhile ago I was walking along Sumida River, one of Tokyo’s great waterways at dusk with my camera and snapped these of the Tsukiji harbor area. If you look at the photo of the dock you can see the trucks at the ready to receive the catch straight from the ships, 24/7. As I walked I also caught one of the many tour boats cruising the river from Asakusa to Odaiba and back. Very colorful!

    Oh. Wow. I can’t tell you how may times I’ve tried to capture the feel of the Sumida River at night…and FAILED. These are lovely. I am especially fond of those blingy rainbow-lit tour boats. If you look out at the water from Decks in Odaiba at sundown, they’re all circling around like fireflies.

      Thank you for the kind comment Jonelle, and sorry to reply so late. It’s been very busy. I love those boats as well, someday I would love to have a go on one of them as a guest! (^-^)

    Great photos! A night cruise would have been interesting.

      Thank you Emma! Yes, someday I will have to go, or rent a little boat myself to get closer to the festive boats!
