And you pass under the Tenpozan Bridge, which is a white cable-stayed bridge that has a structure with the bridge beams supported by cables.  On the left side you see USJ, or Universal Studio Japan.  Last year(2014) under the influence of Harry Potter Opening, nearly 13 million tourists visited USJ.  It was the highest record ever and surpassed the number visiting the USJ of Holywood and Florida in U.S.A.  We can see the tower of Hogwarts Castle and roller coaster.
