Overlooking a busy intersection facing JR Tennoji Station, Abeno Pedestrian Bridge has become one of the most attractive landmarks in Osaka. This innovative design bridging nearby facilities now provides safe, spacious, and pedestrian friendly interconnection access for people. Truss girder structure supports its unprecedentedly long span of this kind, connects adjacent destinations, and offers spacious passage with comfort and convenience in which people enjoy busy urban view through the skeleton structure. The unique design draws a huge "a" , representing Abeno and things begin.
