Nijubashi Bridge

Located in the plaza outside the Imperial Palace, the Nijubashi or two bridges span the moat to the main (south) entrance of the inner palace grounds. The stone and iron bridge pictured is also called Meganebashi, Eyeglass Bridge, while the wooden two leveled bridge that formerly stood in this location is where the common name for this bridge is derived.
