Introduction, Recommendations and Barrier Free Functions

 Yoshidahashi is a road bridge over what used to be a river beneath the Metropolitan Expressway between Bashamichi and Isezaki-cho, Naka-ku, Yokohama-shi, Kanagawa-ken. Built when the port opened as a bridge to connect the centre of the trading port and Yoshida Shinden, it served as the hub of transportation for many comers and goers for a long time. The second-generation bridge built in 1869 is known as Japan’s first pier-less steel truss bridge, and Japan’s second steel bridge.
The current bridge has two layers, and the upper layer consists of two lanes of car roads and pedestrian pavements on both sides. It’s one way from Bashamichi to Isezaki, and Isezaki Mall is a pedestrian lane, so cars have to turn right to Shin-Yokohama Dori Street towards Sakuragi-cho or Yoshida-machi after crossing the bridge. The balustrade has a design with an image of the second bridge ‘Kane no Hashi’, or ‘Steel / Money Bridge’. The lower layer of the bridge is a basement square called Marinard.
