Diary in Google Translate (Extra)Water capital Edo Bridge (2) Bridges over the Sumida River

The Sumida River, which symbolizes Edo (Tokyo) with a total length of 23.5 kilometers that pours into Tokyo Bay, is currently called the “Sumi River Bridge Group” with more than 30 bridges currently built.


Each of these bridge blends into the daily lives of the people who live there, and brings peace and moisture to those who come from far or near.


Therefore, from among the Ukiyo-e paintings that were prosperous in the Edo period, Ukiyo-e artist: Hiroshige Utagawa (1797-1858) drew a picture of the three bridges over the Sumida River, showing how the Sumida River and bridges relate to people's lives at that time. I decided to see what it was.
