Title Dai Nihon Tokyo – Azuma Bashi Shinsho
Tokyo in Greater Japan – A true picture of Azuma Bridge
Date November 28, 1887
Publisher Fukuda Kumajiro
Format Oban triptych (28 1/4" X 13 7/8")
Comment Azuma Bridge was the first metal bridge to span the Sumida River. It opened in December of 1887, so this print is a little premature, perhaps looking forward to the crowds who would enjoy the bridge in the Spring.
