Maybe,even though Japanese people will not able to read this Kanji letter.
It pronounces “Shirahigebashi”. So difficult Kanji letter. Of course, I cant write.
“白髭(Shirahige)” means white beard. ”橋(bashi) means bridge.
*If only “橋” one word, its pronunciation is “hashi”. Japanese pronunciation changed by its before or after words.
As its name, this is white bridge.
This name comes from Shirahigejinja shrine. It is located near from bridge at Sumida-Ku.
Ishihamajinja shrine is nearer. It is located Arakawa-Ku. These shrines are located opposite side of bridge.
Form is combined straight and carved iron. Stable design.
Center arch area. Diagonal lines enhances strength.
Toward upper stream.
Rough surface. I can feel iron. It’s so cool.
Retro design lights.
Toward down stream. Tokyo Skytree is seen.
Whole bridge from near.
To watch from just in front like second photo, it is needed to move upper stream.
Another day, this is from near Suijin-ohashi brige.
Suijin-ohashi is next bridge from Shirahigabashi bridge toward upper stream.
Left highway is Metropolitan Expressway No. 6 Mukojima line.
Highway Star!! Metropolitan Expressway No. 6 Mukojima Line
I moved closer place along Sumida River.
This is view from middle place of Shirahigebashi Brige and Suijin-ohashi Brige.
Evening is coming.
This day was soft and beautiful evening.
Sumida river changed its expression as time went on.
These photos are similar, but I couldn’t choose, so I post all of them.
Yellow light under Shirahigebashi Bridge is Sakurabashi Bridge.
The “X” , Sakurabashi Bridge
This day, Skytree was white color light up. It was suit for Shirahige(white beard) Bridge.
Near Suijin-ohashi bridge again. Beautiful lights with high way.
To walk from Shirahigebashi Bridge to Suijin-Ohashi is a little far. But not impossible.
Sidewalk is well prepared. Tripod is easy to use.
