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.
A bird, it’s time to go home.
Life with bridge.
Here is crossing bridge and highway(left). And also ship yard.
Beautiful lines. There are 2 towers on the bridge. Each tower is tied with 14 wires.
It’s time to go home people too.
Bottom is flat.
Towers from below.
Twilight. This day, I didn’t have tripod. I set camera on ground. It was difficult to make angle.
Can you see Mt.Fuji on right below??
I don’t know reason, this moment was so colorful!!
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.
I felt I’m shaking hands with bridge!
Tower is about 50m high.
Composition lines and sky.
Ship yard. Yesterday, I was there. There is also water gate.
Tied wires. These thin wires work together to support bridge. Many people and cars pass through here. These wires are supporting our life too.
This bridge is 203m long. Here is near from river mouth. So river is wide.
Crossing with highway. Highway is crossing over bridge.
Bottom of highway.
Daishibashi bridge ties with Ota-Ku,Tokyo and Kawasaki city,Kanagawa Prefecture. Here is also border.
Here is Kawasaki city side. Yesterday, I was Ota-Ku side.
It’s like a creature!
Here is near from Haneda international airport. Control tower is seen.
Tower and airplane.
A little surreal??
Lines makes beautiful composition. I really like it. Here is fun to taking pictures!
Sunset over Tama River.
Long exposure of tower with ND 400 filter.
Continuity with bird. It became dark, light tracks were appeared.
Shaking hands for good bye!
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.
Like a kamehameha! in Japanese manga “Dragonball”.
