The Road Origin Marker of Japan
The starting point of roads since the Edo period.
Nihonbashi was made the starting point of the five major roads in 1604. During the Meiji era, the center of the bridge was made the starting point of all the national roads in Japan. The bronze road origin marker with calligraphy by Eisaku Sato, then Prime Minister, is set in the center of the roadway on the bridge. Its replica is displayed in the “Genpyo no Hiroba,” a square located at the northwest end of the bridge.
