Yagiri no Watashi is the only traditional ferryboat left in Tokyo and runs from Shibamata. The boat crosses the Edo River and enters Chiba Prefecture on the other side of the Edogawa river.

There are no large facilities on the Chiba Prefecture side and no bridges nearby, so basically, once you cross the river, you will soon be back on the Yagiri no Watashi again to return.

On the Katsushika Prefecture side, there are monuments such as the tomb of Ito Saichio’s Nogiku, Shibamata Teishakuten and the surrounding shopping streets.

The Shibamata Teishakuten area and Yagiri Watashi were selected as one of the 100 best soundscapes in Japan.
