AzumaBashi Bridge

This is  part view of the AzumaBashi Bridge as we left our river cruise and began the next section of our tour. The bridge was originally constructed in 1774, but was destroyed in an earthquake. The current bridge was built in 1931, and is currently under debate as to the colour. The colour was changed from blue to red in 1993 as part of a government project to give the bridge a "regional flavour".
