Walk along the Sumida River (Part 2): From Asakusa to Tsukiji

A nice thing to do after visiting Asakusa and Tokyo Skytree is to walk south along the Sumida River. It is possible to go all the way to Tokyo Bay on foot (for example, ending at Harumi Passenger Ship Terminal). In this post, I stopped at Tsukiji, after making a detour by Tsukishima Island, where the Sumida River forks into 2 channels before reaching Tokyo Bay.
