Kintai Bridge – Travel Photo of the Moment

The Travel Photo of the Moment is of Kintai Bridge

The Kintai Bridge is located in the Japanese city of Iwakuni, which is in turn located in Japan’s Yamaguchi Prefecture. Spanning the Nishiki River, the Kintai Bridge features a series of five wooden bridges. Although the bridge was originally built in 1673, it was rebuilt in 1953 after flooding from a typhoon destroyed it. The original bridge was notable because, despite its size, it used no metal at all. The reconstructed bridge makes use of some metal nails.
