"Kayoibashi" in Ohara, Kyoto, and "Doh-bashi" in Minami-dawara, Nara
I made a visit to two bridges in Kyoto and Nara Prefectures in Japan in December 1993. These bridges were listed in a famous book, "Hashi to Nihon-jin" (Bridges and the Japanese people), written by Prof Atsushi Ueda.
I went to Ohara, a suburb of the city of Kyoto where the famous Sanzen-in Temple stands. It was very early in the morning and frost was on the surface of the wooden "Kayoi-bashi" bridge. Without visiting Sanzen-in, I returned to the centre of the city and took a train down to Nara. Minami-dawara, where the "Doh-bashi" bridge is located, is in the outskirts of the city of Nara, but because there is no tourists' attractions around only the local residents would visit the area.
