“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.”
