Yagiri-no-watashi ferry Shibamata Tokyo 1

Loading area and dock for the Yagiri-no-watashi ferry, near Shibamata, Tokyo.

Before there were bridges, parts of Tokyo were served by small ferry boats like this.

Perhaps the last one in existence is on the edge of Shibamata, popularized by the iconic “Tora-san” movie series.
