The dragons at Nihonbashi
Updated: Apr 8, 2018
Actually, those dragons are Kirin (Chinese Chimeras)! It's an unusual choice for a sculpture of a Kirin to also have wings, but in this case they symbolizes the city's rapid development. Taking a break from work, I decided to take a quick stroll through Nihon-Bashi (Translated as Japan Bridge) This bridge became famous as the gateway into the city of Tokyo during the Edo period, which was then called "Edo Bridge". With the highways looming overhead, I felt the atmosphere surrounding the bridge had a unique, almost cyberpunk feel to it.
