The Lines, Daishibashi Bridge


This day, I was walking around along Tama River.
Then I happened to find beautiful sunset over large bridge.
I did not know that bridge. It was Daishibashi bridge.
I love bridge. So I walked to there.

In former article, I wrote about Tama River near Seisekisakuragaoka station,Tama City,Tokyo.
Lights and Green, Yuhi-no-oka, Sakuragaoka Park
This river is the same river, but here is near river mouth area.
So here is a little far from Tama City.

It was so beautiful sunset that a cat also came to see it.

Next day, I went Daishibashi again to take photos on the bridge.
The name “Daishibashi” comes from Kawasakidaishi Temple. Its real name is Heikenji temple. But generally called Kawasakidaishi.
Kawasakidaishi is so famous and many people visit to pray. Especially 初詣 (Hatsumoude=new year’s first visiting for praying) is soooo crowded!! Kawasakidaishi is about 1km from bridge.

Tied wires. These thin wires work together to support bridge. Many people and cars pass through here. These wires are  supporting our life too.

Daishibashi bridge is a part of “Tokyo metropolitan road and Kanagawa prefectural road No. 6 Tokyo Daishi Yokohama Line”.
Generally called “Sangyo-doro”. Sangyo means industrial. Doro means road in Japanese. This road ties Ota-Ku,Tokyo and Tsurumi-Ku,Yokohama city,Kanagawa prefecture Japan. This area is belongs to Keihin industrial area. So here has heavy traffic. Especially, trucks are often seen. I took this photo entrance of Daishibashi bridge at Ota-Ku side.
