Japan's Bridges: Shin-Iinogawa Bridge in Miyagi Prefecture
June 2011 (38.514 Degrees, 141.308 Degrees) Shin-Iinogawa Bridge
The next bridge we came to (as we continued driving northeast around the hills in Kofunakoshi) was the Shin-Iinogawa Bridge across the Kitakami River. It is a long steel girder bridge on concrete pier walls. When I first looked at it, I wasn't sure what I was seeing until I realized that every inch of the superstructure was covered in canvas while it was being repainted.
