70710-0003 - Nihonbashi Bridge


Tokyo Taisho 1910s Unknown

Streetcars cross Nihonbashi Bridge in Tokyo, designed by Yorinaka Tsumaki (妻木頼黄, 1859-1916).

The building on the left is the head office of Teikoku Seima Co., Ltd. (still active today as Teikoku Sen-I Co., Ltd.). Completed in 1913 (Taisho 2), it was designed by Kingo Tatsuno (辰野金吾, 1854–1919), and is considered to be a representative example of Meiji Period (1868-1912) architecture.

The white building in the back is the Mitsukoshi Department Store.
