Bridge Documentation

This ornate bridge is one of the only known pin-connected truss bridges in Japan. The bridge was originally built in 1904 as a bridge with three truss lines over the Sumida River as the former Ryogoku Bridge. It was moved here and converted into bridge with two truss lines in 1923.
