Many of Sumida River’s bridges come from former ferry boats Piers.
Early Meiji Period(late 1800s), ferry boats line were more than 20.
They were mainly used for people’s life. Not for tourism.

Shioiri no Watashi (Shioiri Pier) was last ferry boats line.
It was abolished in 1966.
But recently, to decrease traffic jam, boat taxi is reconsidered.
It’s related to Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
To commute by boat taxi is so cool!

This is bottom of the bridge.
Many pipes, but simple.

Someiyoshino is poplar and famous. If you here “Sakura” you’ll imagine Someiyoshino. Kawazu-zakura is also beautiful.

Bridge links people’s life. Bridge’s design is not bridge itself.
I think it is social design. So I take bridge photos with surrounding situation.
