In the event of the 1964 Olympics, Tokyo invested large amounts of money in the construction of new projects, stadiums, arenas, and highways. The Olympics served as a stage for Japan’s re-entry into the world community, by showing their potential as a country recovered from the war. A hundred kilometers of new superhighways were built. One of these is the Edobashi segment, a network of roads that fly over the historical Nihonbashi bridge.
