Description

Modeled after a bridge over the Rhine in Cologne, Germany, it was completed in March 1928 following the Great Kanto Earthquake. In contrast to the muscular Eitai Bridge, this self-anchored suspension bridge has an elegant, feminine appearance. Illuminated In the evening, it has a beautiful, feminine form. The bridge connects Kiyosumicho in Fukagawa with Nihonbashi-nakasucho; its name is made of one kanji from each. Along with the Eitai and Kachidoki bridges, this one was designated an Important Cultural Property in June 2007. A seven-minute walk from Kiyosumi-shirakawa Station on the Hanzomon Subway Line.
