Stopped on the pedestrian bridge spanned over Koshu Kaido, which was one of Edo Five Routes. Many buildings were seen from the bridge. There are many buildings in the city of Shinjuku and it is one of the bustling areas in Tokyo. Yet this area was not included in the area of Edo, which was the seat of power for the Tokugawa shogunate. This area was the first post station on the route. The city of Tokyo was expanded with taking in the surrounding land.
The Koshu Kaido was not crowded. When the traffic light turned red, two buses stopped at the traffic light. And many pedestrians started to cross the pedestrian crossing in chorus. Watching the scenery, the pedestrian crossing was occupied by the pedestrians.
