Tokyo, Japan's Bridges: Sakaibashi across the Kita Jikkengawa

March 2012 (35.706 Degrees, 139.824 Degrees) Sakai Bashi
The next bridge is a two span steel girder bridge that was built in 1974. Pedestrian walkways were built along the east and west shoulders. In the background we can see another water main crossing the canal. The Sky Tree Tower is now visible in the distance.

The canal has been given quite a facelift. The grim soldier piles have been replaced by clean, stone-faced retaining walls and there's a new rail and a pleasant walkway along the canal.
