Friday, March 23
Humanity bridge which connected Kanda and Otemachi was opened.
It was invited public participation for the public, and name of bridge was chosen among 74 points of application.
Name is "ryukan Sakura Bridge"!

◎What is "ryukan?"
Slant of this humanity bridge is opposite, and there is minipark called "Kamakura child play garden".
Go ahead through former alley of this park, and sink in underpass of JR, across Chuo-dori
Furthermore, there is "ryukanjidokoen" at former end across Showa-dori.
Canal flowed through thin alley of this route until the around 30s of Showa.
"ryukankawa" was called Kanda Hatchobori by the canal again.
This canal is border of Kanda and Nihonbashi in the Edo era
It is ward world of Kanda ward and Nihonbashi ward after the Meiji era
It becomes ward world of Chiyoda-ku and Chuo-ku to date from 1948
It is important place.
Name of old canal which was hardly used now
It revived by bridging of "ryukan Sakura Bridge"!

To be exact, sandwich the Nihonbashi River; with 2, Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku
4, Nihonbashihongokucho, Chuo-ku was connected by bridge.
So far everybody of the Otemachi area
We made large rotation in Kamakura Bridge or new Joban bridge and left for the Kanda Station area
Time is shortened at a stretch by opening of this ryukan Sakura Bridge.

Scene that it seems that we go up stairs of bridge from Kanda side is group of buildings of business area of Otemachi.

Scenery that we got used to when we advanced to in bridge and looked back.
I see Chiyoda-ku sports center along Sotobori Street very well on the left side.
To the right hand of JR elevated; when advance to go, the west exit of JR Kanda Station is instant distance.

As we appear approximately parallel with track of JR
Vehicle of the Shinkansen various let alone Yamanote Line and Keihin-Tohoku Line
View passing frequently is unbearable for railroad fan.
That you are watching on the Kanda side and Otemachi side; is
As elevator of skeleton is installed
Bad foot and people of stroller, wheelchair can take a walk in peace!

Outer moat bridge means name of bridge of JR to appear parallel to this bridge.
It was built over the Nihonbashi River in 1918 in 1918.
We went round the Nihonbashi River by ship and were seen until now only from the water
I came to see crest of photograph very well from this ryukan Sakura Bridge.
This emblem is "driving wheel" of old Ministry of Railways mark.
This may be stuff of appendix slaver for not only railroad fan but also bridge enthusiast.

ryukan Sakura Bridge, please go out!
