Tokyo, Japan's Bridges: Sakura Bridge across the Sumida River (3)

March 2012 (35.717 Degrees, 139.807 Degrees) Sakura Bashi
A not very successful attempt has been made to provide an aesthetic treatment for the Sakura Bridge. The light and dark paving stones on the deck are nice and the sloped lamp posts and railing are interesting. However, the white cones are rather unpleasant and so are the golden girders. I think the bridge would be nicer if they just stuck to earth tones and the feeling that we are walking on an old bridge (suggested by the stones and the textured curb).
