Kanazawa’s Asanogawa Ohashi (浅野川大橋)

asanogawa ohashi bridge

Beautiful sky over the Asano River in Kanazawa, Japan

I took this photo in Kanazawa last summer because the sky was so interesting. I didn’t realize until much later that this is a rather famous bridge (Asanogawa Ohashi). Originally built in 1594, the current structure is from 1922. In 2000 this bridge was classified as a tangible cultural property (登録有形文化財) which I’m guessing is something similar to the USA’s National Registry of Historical Places.

On the left side of the bridge is Kanazawa’s famous Geisha Tea House District (東茶屋街).
