Miyoshibashi, Kyobashi, c. 1930, looking east toward the Sumida river. The canal was drained and reconstructed in the 1960s (see below) as the Inner Circular Route passing beneath the Shuto Expressway at this location.

“December 15, 1929 – The Miyoshi Bridge, part of the Kyobashi Ward reconstruction project, celebrated its opening ceremony. The Y-shaped, tri-span bridge 11-meters in width and 82.8-meters long crosses the bend of the Tsukiji canal at Shintomicho, in Kyobashi Ward [present-day Chuo Ward], near Ginza, becoming one of Tokyo’s new attractions. It was built at a cost of ¥209,000.”
