160308-0043 - Yotsubashi Bridges


Osaka Meiji 1910s Ueda Studio

Yotsubashi Bridges (四ツ橋) in Osaka.

There are streetcar tracks, dating this image to after August 1908 (Meiji 41).

The four wooden bridges were located where the Nagahorigawa (長堀川) and Nishi-Yokoborigawa (西横堀川) canals crossed, creating a very scenic spot.

The wooden bridges were replaced with modern after 1908 (Meiji 41) to accommodate Osaka’s new streetcar system.

Nagahorigawa was filled up in 1964 (Showa 39) and became Nagahori-dori (長堀通). Nishi-Yokobori-Gawa was reclaimed in 1962 (Showa 37) and became Yotsubashi Avenue (四ツ橋筋). The last of the four bridges was removed in 1970 (Showa 45).
