|(35.736 Degrees, 139.814 Degrees) Suijin Bridge|
We are actually standing at what was the mouth of the enormous Tone River before civil engineers diverted most of the water to the east (starting at around 700 AD). As you can see on the map below, the east bank of the Sumida River was originally islands in Tokyo Bay. Where we are standing in the photo is called Suijin, the name of the water deity in the Shinto religion.
