110607-0012 - Kyobashi Bridge


Osaka Meiji 1860s Unknown
An extremely rare view of the wooden Kyobashi Bridge crossing the Neyagawa River (寝屋川) at Osaka Castle, Osaka, ca. 1860s (early Meiji). The bridge, first erected in 1623, was named Kyobashi because the road it connected to lead to Kyoto (京街道, Kyokaido). Interestingly, on the north side of the bridge a freshwater fish market was located here during the Edo Period (1604-1868). In 1885 (Meiji 18) the bridge was washed away during a flood and replaced with an iron construction.
