Kon-nyaku Bridge, over Akui River, Tokushima, Japan
Photograph taken on: 24 July 1988. (Larger image)
Hamatakabo Bridge, which is nicknamed "Kon-nyaku Bridge", that goes over Akui River in Tokushima, Japan. "Kon-nyaku" stands for a kind of Japanese food which is just like jelly. When the water level becomes high, the bridge will go under water; the Kon-nyaku Bridge is a famous example of such "submerging" bridges. The timger bridge floor panels can be removed when flood is expected. The photo was taken some 12 years ago; my photographing skill at that time was apparently even poorer.
