100908-0020 - Tenjinbashi Bridge


Osaka Meiji 1890s Unknown
Tenjinbashi Bridge (天神橋), Osaka. The bridge was together with Tenmabashi and Naniwabashi considered to be one of the Three Large Bridges of Naniwa (the historical name for Osaka). While most bridges in Osaka were built by business people, these three were managed directly by the Tokugawa Shogunate. Such bridges were called Kogibashi.

The original wooden bridge was washed away by floods in July, 1885 (Meiji 18) and replaced by the steel truss bridge (トラス橋) shown in this photograph in 1888 (Meiji 21). In 1934 (Showa 9), this bridge was replaced. That bridge is still in use today.
