Anju and Zushiou Memorial Tower
The story of Anju and Zushiou Maru is known far and wide from the Nou Drama song "Baba Shouten," the ballad drama "Sanseu, Tayuu" and Mori Ougai's story, "Sanshou Dayuu." The bridge "Ouka no Hashi" no longer exists, so this memorial tower was constructed near the Arakawa Bridge. In March of Showa Year 62 (1987), the tower was moved to its current location due to river enhancements.
