Nijyu-bashi

Nijyu-bashi(stone bridge)
This bridge (photo above) is made of stone.
It leads to the main gate of Imperial palace from Imperial palace plaza.
You can see fushimi-turret of former Edo castle over the bridge.

And there are another bridge over this moat.
It is behind this bridge.


Nijyu-bashi(iron-bridge)
This bridge is made of iron.
It leads to inside of imperial palace from main gate.
We usually call those two bridges "Nijyu-bashi"
But originally "nijyu-bashi" indicate this iron bridge.

Nice bridges and so inviting for a walk over them today! I am glad you enjoyed the Desert Wildflower Chihuly exhibit on my site. Everybody loves Chihuly. I will keep posting more of Chihuly over time.

I like them both. I'm partial to stone bridges, but I think it's only because they're so rare these days.
