I guess I somehow missed this milestone in Japanese history.  It was on this date in 1993, the Shuto Expressway No. 11 was completed.  Yes, this is a part of the famous Rainbow Bridge that began to be constructed in 1987.  It is a half-mile suspension bridge that carries three transit lines and has two levels.  There are also two walkaways on each side that lead to breath-taking views of Tokyo Bay and sometimes even Mt. Fuji.  Be sure to check out more breathtaking views of this amazing structure on some of the websites listed below.  There is also more information on each site.
