On one of of my recent flights, I saw a Japanese murder mystery movie The Wing of the Kirin. I was not only touched by the story but also intrigued by the history of Nihonbashi Bridge built in the 1607 during the Edo Period. The bridge is the starting place of road networks in Japan, installed with “the road origin marker of Japan”. The current stone double-arch bridges were built in 1911, and designated as the first cultural important property of Japan’s national roads.
Last week I was in Tokyo, on Thursday night after work I went there for a visit and captured these photos.
Thanks for stopping by today! If you are ever in Tokyo, go to visit Nihonbashi and the surrounding area. You will like what you see.
