Sumida river cruise/Круиз по реке Сумида

Well, it was not really a cruise per se. Sumida river boat is a part of the Tokyo's public transportation system. Mostly tourists take this route though because there is a wait time and you are not guaranteed a seat. So if you have plenty of free time, you are welcome to take a boat under many bridges.

Круиз -- это громко сказано. Речной трамвай на реке Сумида это часть транспортной системы Токио. Этим видом транспорта пользуются в основном туристы или те, у кого много свободного времени. Трамваи ходят нечасто, надо стоять в очереди на посадку, и места не гарантированы. Хотя бы один раз съездить все равно стоит.

This is where the trip started for us, we took that boat. The place is located close to Asakusa, and that tall tower with cranes on the far left is the Tokyo Sky Tree.

Наше путешествие началось вот здесь. Это место недалеко от Асакусы и высокое строящееся здание слева вдалеке это башня Небесное Дерево Токио.

There are pictures drawn on the walls along the river banks.

Стены набережной реки украшены картинами. Картины все в рамках и специально повешены в тех местах, не граффити.


It is a nice and quiet place to walk for people who live in the vicinity. The trip was quite lengthy, we spent almost an hour just traveling down to our next stop. But it did not seem like it was too long because we enjoyed the view.

Набережная реки Сумида, хоть из себя не представляет ничего такого особенного, является популярным местом для прогулок. Наш проезд на трамвайчике был небыстрым, мы ехали почти час. Но время пролетело быстро, так как мы ехали в первый раз и нам было интересно смотреть по сторонам.

This river tram is not the only type of boat that travels along the river.

По этой реке ходят всякие разные корабли и лодки.


This was a nice and refreshing way to get to our next stop.

Это был весьма удобный и освежающий способ добраться до следующей точки нашего путешествия.
