It is a couple bridges downstream from the Sakura (or cherry blossom) bridge we studied yesterday.
Like the Thames and the Seine, the Sumida River and its bridges has been a source of inspiration for Japanese artists such as Hiroshige and Hokusai. Today, one has to travel to one of Tokyo's less urbanized rivers like the Arakawa to get that same sense of peace and pleasure that was depicted in their prints.
