Japan’s most famous bridge to see the light again

In the Edo period (1603-1867), the Nihonbashi (Japan Bridge) was the starting point to measure all distances to Tokyo (the former Edo). The bridge (originally erected in 1603) exists until today but vanished under the elevated metropolitan expressway. Now, the work has commenced removing the road over the historic landmark (built in 1911). After spending 320 billion yen (2.2 billion euros), the Nihonbashi will see the light again in 2040.
