Second Intake Tower of the Kanamachi Purification Plant (金町浄水場取水塔), & Third Intake Tower of the Kanamachi Water Purification Plant (金町浄水場 第三取水塔)
Two water treatment plant intake towers may seem like something only a water engineer would be interested in. However, these twin structures, the first one no longer exists, are interesting bits of architecture in their own right. The second tower, the one with as conical roof, was built in 1941. They can be approached on the pathway next to the river on the one on top of the levee. The second tower also has a stairway connecting the two pathways. By the way the south exit of JR Kanamachi Station has a bench with a small replica of the tower
