Metropolitan Expressway is called aorta of Tokyo.
It was built around 1964 for Tokyo Olympic games.
Tokyo is Metropolis.
However, its range is surprisingly narrow.
And transportation is busy.
So it was needed to build complex crossing and many curves.
I think those reasons made Metropolitan Expressway unique design.
I like complex crossing and curves very much!
Human being made those designs for living.
Not design for beauty,but design for living.
I feel pulsation of human life from design for living.
Also,in this meaning,Metropolitan Expressway is aorta.
Here are photos of Metropolitan Expressway No. 6 Mukojima line.
Here you can see Expressway and river.Its reflection is beautiful.
This river is Sumidagawa river.
Here is around side of Hamacho park.
During high tide or after rain,here is a little flood.
So watch your step!
Pedestrian area is enough prepared and broad,here is easy to take photos with tripod.
Many runners and walkers pass through here,you should stand tripod aside of pedestrian area.
Hard worker’s rest…
