Abstract

  • Ryōgoku Bridge over the Sumida River in Edo (present-day Tokyo) was a lively place in the Edo period (1600−1868), the scene displays fireworks and other entertainments in the neighborhood of the bridge. First built in the middle of the 17th century as a wooden bridge, it was renovated and repaired several times before it was rebuilt using modern construction methods in 1904. This document is a pictorial record of the reconstruction of the bridge in 1839. The document is concertina-folded and each section of the bridge is depicted twice. The length of the whole document is over 4 meters long. Its most remarkable feature is that the bridge deck is illustrated on another piece of paper, which is pasted over the page to form a flap. When the paper is turned over, the wooden beams and supports illustrated underneath can be seen. In this presentation, the same page is captured in two consecutive frames: one is of the illustration drawn on the flap; and the other, the one below. For example, when you turn over the illustration of the bridge deck, shown in frame 11, the removed picture appears in frame 12. The detail of the illustrations is such that even the birds swimming on the river are drawn.(en)

    東京を流れる隅田川にかかる両国橋は、花火やその界隈での娯楽により、江戸時代から際立った賑わいを見せる場所であった。17世紀半ばにかけられたこの橋は、1904年に近代工法による橋となるまで、木造の姿で度々のかけ直しや修復を経た。当資料は1839年にかけ直されたときの出来形絵図(模型図)である。 この資料は折本仕立てになっていて、延べて広げていくと4メートルを優に超える長さとなり、橋全体がそのまま描かれている。 当資料最大の特色は橋の床の面がすべて貼り込み状態となっており、めくりあげると骨組の橋桁が見える仕掛けになっていることである。画像は、貼り込みの状態とめくりあげた状態を交互に撮影している。例えば、11コマめの橋の床をめくりあげたのが12コマめである。川面に浮かぶ鳥まで描かれているのが面白い。
