Sanjo Ohashi Bridge・三条大橋

Just in time for the new year, the historic Sanjo Ohashi Bridge has been redone with new wooden railings, a barrier between pedestrian and vehicular traffic, and brand new lighting from one end to the other. It’s a bright new icon of Kyoto.

The Sanjo Ohashi has existed in some form since at least 1590 (this bridge is from 1950), and is the ending point of both the Tokaido and Nakasendo roads, immortalized in Utagawa Hiroshige's famous ukiyo-e woodblock print series, The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido (1833-1834).
