Tokyo Gate Bridge Run

Tokyo Gate Bridge is the newest addition to the collection of great bridges in Tokyo Harbor.  The total length of it is 2,618 m with the distance between towers being 440 m is actually longer than that of the celebrated Tokyo's Rainbow Bridge and Yokohama Bay Bridge. It will be open to public next weekend.

To celebrate it, there was an 8K run on Saturday morning.

It was a beautiful day - Mt. Fuji was very clear seen.

Here's the bridge - magnificent!

At the start - some 5,000 runners participated!

About 1 km into the run - almost to the first of the two great trusses.

On the truss - it is beautiful.  Notice - almost no bolts!

After the turn around point heading back to the bridge.

Back on the bridge again.  Runners were very happy to be running on it on such a beautiful day.

Tokyo Fire Department ships saluted us as seagulls flew by.
