The largest structure in Asakua Jinjo is the Shinto shrine to the Hokouuma brothers and their master, Naji-no Nakamoto. That team played a key role in the founding of Sensaji.

The construction of some attractions in Tokyo represents an ongoing project. Tourists can get a true sense of Japan by viewing the bridges across the Sumida River . That branch of the Arakawa River has 26 bridges, bridges over which residents of Tokyo pass frequently.

One of the first bridges over the Sumida River was built in 1659. After it developed signs of wear and tear, it was replaced; a new bride appeared at the same crossing in 1932. Other old bridges have also been replaced. The Azuma Bridge built in 1714 was replaced in 1931. The Umaya Bridge built in 1875 was replaced in 1929.

The Tasukuda Bridge was the first bridge built following World War II. Before that War, back in 1940, the Japanese constructed a different kind of bridge. The Kachidoki Bridge is the only drawbridge crossing the Sumida River .

By the 1960s, the world was ready to forget the fighting of World War II. In 1964, Tokyo played host to the Summer Olympic Games. Three years after the closing ceremonies for those Games, a new park opened in Tokyo . That park, the Yoyogi Ken, covers a large area and has many trees. On occasion,

a tourist can find some flea markets in that same park. No visitor to Tokyo can fail to see the huge Tokyo Tower . It is 333 meters high, even higher than the Eiffel Tower . The Tower has two observatories. Tourists who venture up to one of those observatories on a clear day can catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji .

Tokyo Transfer

The Tokyo Tower attracts visitors both day and night. At night one can not see Mount Fuji from the Tower, but the light show still makes a nighttime a trip to the Tower well worth a few added touring hours. At night 176 floodlights shine on the Tokyo Tower .

As a traveler takes in all the attractions in Tokyo , he or she is apt to work up an appetite. Many attractions have a restaurant that caters to those who visit that particular attraction. A traveler who prefers to visit places that are more “off the beaten path” should know about all the little spots where one can find food in Tokyo .

A traveler in Tokyo can not always plan to be close to a big restaurant. A traveler in Japan 's largest city seldom has time to stop at a market and purchase something to eat. Yet a traveler in Tokyo might want to dine at a cheese shop, a wine bar or a bakery. The uniqueness of such venues can make them almost as interesting as Tokyo 's more popular attractions.
