This bridge is called "錦帯橋, Kintaikyo"
One of the three masterpiece of wooden bridges in Japan.
My husband's brother lives very close to this famous bridge. Last Sunday, his wife had 60th birthday celebration as well as retirement form her job as a nurse. We were able to have a wonderful gathering with nieces and their babies as well. After leaving their house, I decided to take pictures to introduce this bridge. Here is the English page you can read the detail by category;
*The view from the parking lot alongside the river*
*View from the road side after go up the stairs from the parking lot*
|entrance to the bridge; you can see the cars parked under the bridge|
*After crossing, view from the opposite side of the river*This bridge leads to the castle located above the mountain. And enabled the vassals of the land lord to gather swiftly for the important meetimg etc.
As the link page said, this unique and sophisticated construction of the bridge arches is said to be impeccable, even from the perspective of modern bridge engineering. This is not the original bridge, rebuild version.
