舟で運ばれてきた米や大豆などの物資が貯蔵されていました。 This is one of my favorites.
The river is Nihonbashi-river. This side is Kayaba-cho, and the other side Koami-cho.
Where the Yoroi-bridge is today, there was a ferry called Yoroi Ferry.
A woman is standing by the river. She looks very cool in her Kimono patterned with wisteria.
Is she waiting for the ferry?
Or is she seeing someone off?
In Koami-cho, there were a lot of white-washed storehouses.
They were to store goods shipped to Edo, such as rice and beans.
This is a view from Yoroi-bridge.
Because of the highway above, it doesn't look very nice, does it?
Tokyo Stock Exchange is right by the Yoroi-bridge. This area is Kabuto-cho, the financial center of Japan.
While I was looking for the Yoroi Bridge, I got lost and came across a little shrine.
Even though I didn't know what that shrine was, I offered a little prayer.
Later, I learned that it was Kabuto Shrine, which is believed to be the guardian god of the securities industry.
Maybe I should buy some stocks!
This is the view from Minato Bridge.
Without the highway above, this might look more like the old days.
