  3. 住田川にかかる沢山の橋があるのですね。それぞれ特徴のある橋が建設されていたのだなあと思いました。
    奈良では数年前に飛行船を飛ばす会社が閉鎖されたとかで、飛行船が浮かぶ空が見られなくなりました。キィウイが鈴なりですね。藍染の佃煮やさんの”のれん”好きです。

      こんばんは。 終戦後に多くの橋が乏しい予算のなか、それぞれ工夫を凝らして作られました。 先人の偉大さに敬服します。
       大阪の佃村から連れてこられた漁師が佃島に住んで、塩茹でした魚が最初で、野田の醤油を入れて煮て、佃煮が産まれたそうです。
       古風で味わいが有りますね。

  8. I like seeing Tokyo's bridges from the boat. That walkway between the towers of Saint Luke's Hospital looks scary. I don't think I'll apply for the job as window washer! Great photos of the island sights, Minoru.

  18. I enjoyed your tour of Tokyo, so many bridges. I like the reflection of the Skytree in the glass building. It looks very modern there. The giant Kiwi vine is amazing, and the Shrine is interesting.

  21. The photos are so lovely with so many interesting bridges of different designs. This reminds me of Pittsburgh where I studied and they have 446 bridges in the small city!

    I like your clever photography showing the reflections as this is something only could be captured by creative people at that moment.

    I am excited to see the kiwifruits as we have none in my country.
    Thanks again for the superb photos always!

      Thank you very much for your comment. I have never been Pittsburgh,so I check the city by Wikipedia. The city looks very beautiful.
      The shutter chance point of the reflection is well known by many people who live in Tokyo.
      You made my day. Thank you again.
