Tokyo, Japan's Bridges: Sakai Bridges across the Kyu Nakagawa

March 2012 (35.695 Degrees, 139.848 Degrees) Sakai Bridges
Eventually we packed everything into the canoe and headed upstream. The water looked particularly viscous, which is something I've noticed before on Tokyo's canals. The tall Route 7 Metropolitan Expressway Viaduct and the short Sakai Bridges are just ahead. The continuous, steel box girders on the viaduct are able to cross the canal with a single span while the simple steel stringers supporting the Sakai Bridges required a couple of extra piers to get across the river.

I had recently purchased a waterproof camera with GPS (a Fuji), but I noticed that it used the previously obtained latitude and longitude if it lost its satellites. Also, it didn't have much of a lens, just a narrow piece of plastic at the top of the camera. However, it fit in my pocket and took decent photos.
