Hijiri-bashi Bridge 聖橋

4 chome Kanda-Surugadai Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo - 1 chome Yushima Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo

A bridge connecting sanctuaries

Hijiri-bashi Bridge is a modern arch bridge on the Kanda River. The grand arch is a Tokyo landmark and is the model for the Otonashi-bashi Bridge in Takinogawa, Kita City.

The bridge may not be sacred, but it has got saintly connections as it connects two sanctuaries. In the north is The Mausoleum of Confucious at Yushima, a former training center for bureaucrats of the Tokugawa shogunate; and on the south is the Byzantine-style Holy Resurrection Cathedral—a designated Important Cultural Property of Japan.
