Former Danjobashi Bridge

Tokyo oldest iron bridge appointed to important cultural property of country

This is the oldest iron bridge built by the Ministry of Engineering in 1868 at the requests of the Tokyo government. It is a national important cultural property. Originally, it was built in Chuo-ku but was moved to the east side of Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine after the Great Kanto Earthquake and renamed the Hachiman Bridge. It is a small bridge, 15.2 m long and 2 m wide. However, it has the distinctive presence of an early Meiji bridge with a chrysanthemum crest and is precious in terms of bridge history.
