This bridge was built in 1994. Second newest bridge in Sumida River.
Designed by French design office.
Because Seine River and Sumida River made friendship in 1989.
So center tower is designed like “Kabuto”(Japanese traditional style battle helmet.Samurai soldiers put on it.)

This is under the bridge. Adjusting exposure is difficult. Because brightness is quiet different.
Left side is overexposed. I should have use HDR. Next time, I’ll try it.
