Bandai Bridge, Niigata

3.7
After having undergone three incarnations since the Meiji period, today's version of Bandai Bridge dates from 1929 and stands as a symbol of Niigata both for its Showa architecture and historical importance. As the first bridge across the Shinano River, it brought about greater commerce between communities on the opposite banks. After the destruction of the first two wooden versions, the third features a reinforced concrete design. (A nearby shopping district displays materials from the first two in an underground passage.) Embark on a boat tour along the river, or simply find a nice place on the banks to sit down on the grace under Japanese cherry blossoms and enjoy the view.

  • Broken umbrella of pedestrians passed by in a car, but fierce winds in the winter time, so, I was in the opposite direction. That seems pretty cute. Don't want a winter walk.

  • From Jr Niigata station is a route through the old town's stone bridge. With electric snow melting on the left/right sidewalk. And both ends of the bridge in the Middle well tourist photography has taken. This is the bridge withstood the quake Niigata, Niigata is indispensable. Made of granite in the Taisho era 6-arch bridge in the important cultural asset in the country. It was in liuzhou city bridge and port tunnel two sliproads downstream, less traffic, but before the traffic is terrible.
