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.

  • A sturdy bridge withstood the Niigata earthquake, is symbolic of the Niigata City. It is nice in the spring and autumn sunny day a few times, but never walked,. It is near the end of the longest Shinano River.

  • The bridge is taste good. Walk was like a Niigata City's leading tourist attractions, so I went to see. Bridge feels and sounds like a similar bridge was followed by walls of England went to play this summer in York town, watching the Bandai bridge, reminded me of York. Walking well, partly "to York! "And I have been ridiculed by family if I was excited.

  • This is the longest Shinano River Bridge. Maybe 3rd generation? Passing on the island of Niigata-Niigata station. Depending on the season, complete with flowers, I am walking across the way looks of Niigata. If the car is a few seconds, but travel to Niigata Bandai bridge and peace submitted leisurely you want. I think different view depending on the season.

  • Summer night atmosphere here is amazing! Stall of food, drink and great background music.
  • Well, it s a beautiful bridge with some small god bar close to it.
  • 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.
