Kachidoki-bashi (Kachidoki bridge) is a bridge across sumida-gawa (sumida river).
The bridge was built 1940 as moveable bridge (double leaf bascule bridge).
But the bridge has never raised leaves since 1970.

Very nice bridge, but I am now curious about why they don't open it anymore.

I have the same question as Vogon Poet. Ships don't pass the river anymore? It has a very graceful arch, but I still love your old stone bridges much better!

This bridge is outstanding and I liked the composition of the second shot with beautiful flowers!
Great job!

Thanks for your comments!

I suppose the taffic on the bridge is busy with car, so it is difficult to raise leaves.
