Travel Guide - Yagiri-no-Watashi (Yagiri Ferry Crossing)


Yagiri-no-Watashi is one of the ferries established as ferries floating across Edo-gawa River by the Tokugawa Shogunate in the early Edo Period (1603 - 1868). The ferry is also well-known thanks to “Nogiku-no-Haka”, a novel by Itoh Sachiro and “Yagiri-no-Watashi”, a popular Enka song. This is the only ferry still left in Tokyo, and the ferryboat is available for visitors to ride.
