Overview of the Goshikizakura-ohashi Bridge

The Goshikizakura-ohashi Bridge is located on the Arakawa River between the Kohoku Junction and the Itabashi Junction which form the north side of the Central Circular Route currently in service, and it opened as the world's first "Double Deck type Nielsen Lohse bridge" structure in 2002. The bridge was named "Goshikizakura-ohashi Bridge" because the location of the suspension bridge was once a famed cherry blossom spot where multi-colored cherry blossoms bloomed together, resembling a five-colored trailing mist.
