A twin arch bridge made of stone more than 100 years old.
The bridge is said to have been built in 1603 at the order of Tokugawa Ieyasu. The next year, it was made the starting point of the Gokaido, or five major roads and became the symbol of the prosperous city of Edo, the center of Japan. The current twin arch bridge made of stone was completed in 1911. The kirin statue under the bridge light in the center of the bridge depicts the prosperity of the city of Tokyo when it was made, and the shishi statues at the four corners depict protection. The Nihonbashi was designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan.
