Koishikawa Korakuen #3 in Tokyo Japan

River2013

This is Oi river.

It was named after a river running through Kyoto Arashiyama region.

Gabions were put on both sides of the river,

and water was drawn through a ditch from Kanda water supply system.

It is said that the 3rd Shogun Iemitsu Tokugawa, a good friend of Yorifusa,

advised the plan.

The rocks were called "Byobu-iwa", rocks like picture screens,

because they rose vertically like picture screens.

It is said that the 3rd Shogun Iemitsu Tokugawa often visited this place

and sat on the stone by the river.

This bridge was built imitating "the Tuten-bridge" in Tofuku temple in Kyoto,

therefore this bridge was named "the Tuten-bridge".

The beauty of this bridge is enhanced by color of autumn leaves in mid November.
