Togetsu Bridge・渡月橋

A compressed, black & white look at the Togetsu or Moon Crossing Bridge.

The current bridge dates from 1934, but there has been a bridge here for 1200 years. It has been portrayed in numerous artwork, including this ukiyo-e print by Hokusai from around 1830.

現在の橋は1934年に建てられましたが、ここには1200年前から橋があります。 葛飾北斎の浮世絵(1830年頃)など、多くの絵が橋で描かれています。
