As I crossed the long, long Kagetsuen-mae crossing, I saw a railroad bridge nearby

When I came near Keikyu's Kagetsu Sojiji Station, I saw a railroad crossing. It is no wonder that there are railroad crossings where there are railroad tracks. However, the situation here was a little different from the norm. It was a long, long crossing where I had to cross a total of ten tracks, including the Tokaido Main Line, Keihin-Tohoku Line, Yokosuka Line, Tokaido Freight Line, and the Keikyu Main Line.

After waiting for a while, the crossing was raised, so I started walking towards the other side of the tracks. The crossing is said to have been introduced as the longest crossing in Japan, and it is indeed long. If I was not careful, the crossing would be closed before I could cross. As I hurried along, I looked up and saw a railroad bridge ahead of the overhead wires.

With so many tracks, it would be difficult to open the crossing during commuting hours. Even if they did, it would be difficult for the elderly or people with disabilities to use the crossing because it would be a long distance to cross. There is also a railroad bridge nearby. I had a feeling that this crossing in front of Kagetsuen would be abolished soon.
