- Sobu Line Sumida River Bridge
The section of Sobu Line between Ochanomizu and Ryogoku,
now owned and run by JR East,
was started construction in 1931 and completed in 1932.
Constructed as part of the revival from 1923 Kanto Earthquake which killed
nearly 150 thousand people,
the section includes many technical feats of the time.
Many thoughts came to me when looking at such highlights like
Sumida River Bridge or Ochanimizu Station.

("Visiting bridges" special)
Yokoshita Bridge is a bridge over Futawa River, located just near where

Nevertheless, being already 20 years old,
the bridge has seen all the "developments" the region experienced.

- Hamamatsucho Station Footbridge
Near the bridges lies a plaque of "Tanaka Prize", given by the Japan
Society of Civil Engineers to the outstanding work of the year.
The bridge, using paintless brown steel and the rigid frame structure,
does look attractive.
