Tokyo, Japan's Bridges: Adachi-ku Bridges across the Sumida River

March 2012 (35.753 Degrees, 139.770 Degrees) Adachi-Ku Bridges
Continuing into the Adachi Ward where the wide Ogu Road Bridge and the narrow Nippori Toneri Railway Bridge cross the Sumida River. The bridges continue across the Arakawa (the highway bridge rests briefly on an embankment between the two rivers) and then they continue north with the elevated railway in the roadway's median.

The Adachi-Odai Station is part of a railway bridge between the two rivers. Since it was built in 2008 the Nippori Toneri Bridge must have been built at about the same time (although the Ogu Road Bridge could be older).

Across the Sumida the roadway bridge has a continuous three span steel girder superstructure and the rail bridge has a three span concrete box superstructure. We'll see these two bridges again when we turn around and follow the Arakawa back downstream.
