The Fuda no Tsuji Crossing
Add to MyRoute
The JR railway (including the Shinkansen, Tokaido Line, Yamanote Line, and Keihin Tohoku Line) runs alongside and the Fuda no Tsuji Bridge spans in the direction of Shibaura. This is where the main entrance into Edo from the Tokaido (the Edo-era highway from Kyoto) was, and where, in the second year of the Genna era, a gate called Shibaguchimon was built. An official bulletin board for posting edicts and laws was installed here, which is where the name Fuda no Tsuji (literally, 'crossing at the sign') comes from . At that time, Edo Bay could be seen from this point, and it was said that the scenery was ideal.
