Tsujun Bridge in Yabe-cho (Yabe Town), Kumamoto, one of the most famous "pre-modern" bridges in Japan. This is a single-span stone arch bridge, with the total bridge length of 76.3m and the span length of 28.17m, which carries high pressure water tubes across the deep valley of River Todoroki for irrigation. Completed in 1854, it remains as the living monument of high technical potential of the engineers of the age in Japanese Kyushu region. The photo was taken after I attended IEEJ Annual Convention which was held in Kumamoto city this year.
