View from upper stream to down stream. Train is passing.
On this bridge, train runs 15km/h. It’s so slow.
Because there is a steep curve after bridge when train go into Asakusa Station.
Asakusa station is beginning of Tobu Isesaki Line. It ties Asakusa to Isesaki Station located Isesaki City, Gunma Prefecture. Especially between Asakusa Station and Hikifune Station is called as Skytree Line.  Because this area is convenient for Skytree travel.

This is Matsuya Asakusa department store. Art Deco style beautiful appearance.
It was renovated in 2012. But exterior is based on opening design.
This department store opened in 1932 at the same time of opening of Tobu Line as station store.
And now station is still located in 2nd floor.
