June 2011 (38.2552 degrees, 140.8836 degrees) Sendai Railway Bridges
Greetings from Sendai, Japan. Today's photo is of two railroad bridges next to my hotel. The higher one is a concrete box girder bridge for Shinkansen and the lower one is a steel girder bridge for regular trains. These bridges were undamaged from the recent earthquake, but there was little ground shaking damage to bridges in general and I'm six miles from the coast where the tsunami damage occurred.
