This bridge was built in 1694(Edo Period).
In that time it was located more downstream side.
From the construction this bridge was reconstructed over twenty times.

Famous Japanese artist Hiroshige Utagawa(1797-1858) painted Shin-Ohashi Bridge in his last year.
And Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh painted homage of Hiroshige.

Works of Hiroshige and Gogh.

Now this bridge is modern design.

Nightscape with houseboat’s light trace.
I was astonished when I see Shin-Ohashi Bridge at night.
Because it was so shiny and colorful. I could not imagine this view when I see here at daytime. Here is the most colorful bridge in Sumida River.

With surrounding landscape.
Square and triangle. I felt it was like Pythagorean theorem.
This time I didn’t have Remote Release Cord. So I couldn’t take over 30 seconds photo.
There are waves around this area,I wanted to do more longer exposure.
And I want to use wider angle lens. Recently I often take photos of bridge with surrounding landscape.I want to take more wide angle photo.
But I can’t get it.It is too expensive to buy…Hey,Nikon,please help me!!! Give me 14-24 f2.8!!! hahaha…
