We participate in "meeting of Kanda barge" making a round trip of the Kanda River, the Nihonbashi River, the Sumida River, the Onagi River.
Because we say the 59th by holding 2 times a year, it is meeting having the history of approximately 30 years.

We fold the embarkation, and doing is in front of Ryogoku Kokugikan during the Grand Sumo Tournament start.
Flag of ranking sumo wrestler hangs over wind of early summer, and drumbeat color flows through the Sumida River from oar.

 We see last bridge Yanagibashi of the Kanda River

          Across the Sumida River, fleet (four) sails up the Kanda River.

 See near at hand; eruha forever bridge

          kage of building of Akihabara is reflected in wall surface of building under construction in Sudacho.
          Point of traffic since the Edo era. It is not thing which is silly to be able to sink at the bridge.

 We look at Shohei Bridge, Sobu Line from forever bridge

          Because such a scenery floats on the surface of the water, it is scenery to be seen.

 It is right scene called excellent valley

          The Kanda River meanders through point from Ochanomizu. The fresh green as it is dazzling colors building a breakwater beautifully.
          Appearance of perfect scenic spot called excellent valley was valid here once.

 Fleet advances to the Nihonbashi River

          We turn left, and point enters the Nihonbashi River at Misaki Bridge.
          It is called "Hirakawa" before the Kanda River is completed at the beginning of the Edo era and is the original main stream once.
          But, it is horrible though we see now. Most of surface of a river are covered in expressway, and there is not taste dimly, too.

 Stone wall of Edo-jo Castle of the Edo era

          Stone wall of Edo-jo Castle is left in the neighborhood of Hitotsubashi with Mainichi Shimbun.
          There are many stones that carved seal is carved with when we see well.
          Is mason thing which we chopped? Or is it carved seal worth crab of large prestigious family which undertook construction?

 We pass Edo Nihonbashi.

          Does NIPPON ROAD former vote know that bridge is central?
          There is much traffic of car, and cannot usually at all see, but ...
          As miniature shrine is carried on the shoulder by Kanda Festival, Sanno festival to the center, we can see.
          A large number of people take souvenir picture of road former vote.

 It is eco-boat of Chiyoda-ku

          We overtook eco-boat which went down the Nihonbashi River leisurely to and fro.
          If I am not mistaken, we make a round trip to Chiyoda-ku government office and pier of Izumi Bridge on the weekend and should travel.
          It is most suitable to take a walk through the Kanda River, the Nihonbashi River leisurely and is fun. (there is embarkation experience)

 From the Nihonbashi River to the Sumida River

The overwhelming width of a river and the large sky open out. Large ship goes up and down incessantly, too.
Fleet aims at the Onagi River crossing Koto-ku to east and west after this.

The Onagi River
It is canal which the Shogunate made artificially to carry salt and supplies of Gyotoku to town of Edo by transportation by water in the Edo era.
Experience of para-Panama Canal was surprising. The surface of the water raises or lowers 1.5-2 meters.
Spray from water gate which goes up water gate when we sink is not odd.
People putting up their umbrella are experienced people of meeting participation of ship, and, in raincoat, the first "gets wet!"

Make a round trip of the Kanda River, the Nihonbashi River, the Sumida River, the Onagi River; and four fleets
We come back to pier of water bus of the two countries of starting point.
It is tour of approximately two hours, but scenery to watch from the surface of the water looks fresh to.
It is not to be able to make very often bridge where we appeared a lot into even that we sink.

360 people in the afternoon participated in this meeting in the morning.
When if there is opportunity, we go round rivers of Edo, Tokyo having been continued since the Edo era
How about?


※On the next time, the 60th "meeting of Kanda barge" is planned in October.
