Bandai Bridge, Niigata

3.6
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. With our custom trip planner, Niigata attractions like Bandai Bridge can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

    It is an important bridge connecting area of the city and furumachi Niigata station Bandai, has contributed to the growth of the Niigata City. The current bridge was third. It is a beautiful 6-arch from further afield, but doesn't care about walking on and crossing the bridge.

    Route 7 over the Shinano River road bridges are the nationally. First bridge the bridge was constructed in the Shinano River, Niigata City, was completed in 1886, the first. I was surprised the Arch of the six sides with granite veneer reinforced concrete bridge structure withstood the Niigata earthquake.

    Bandai bridge symbol of Niigata 0/2004 designated important cultural assets in the country, the third. First and second generation 2 is a wooden bridge, as dishwasher 5 channel current was as part of the bridge. Imagine that I was standing there at the time how River has a long bridge, can be realized. It was about three times the current length.

    And from the pedestrian standing on the bridge of the river than to look at the quite "nice!" and be healed. It would be 10 minutes worth appreciating cultural heritage.
