Miyoshibashi Ginza canal bridge 2007

In the center of this photo of Ginza, Tokyo from 2007 is the location of the old Miyoshibashi 三吉橋 three-way bridge, built in 1929, that used to span the Tsukiji river; the river was filled-in and replaced with the highway visible in this picture.

A similar bridge exists today in Koto-ku, Tokyo: Onagigawa Clover Bridge 小名木川クローバー橋. See: Koto-ku walking map: Onagigawa & Higashi-Ojima
