Japan's Bridges: Hiyori Bridge in Miyagi Prefecture (4)

June 2011 (38.415 Degrees, 141.312 Degrees) Hiyori Bridge
Another photo of the Hiyori Bridge across the Onagawa River in Ishinomaki. Some people say this bridge is across the Kitakami River (or the Old Kitakami River) because the river splits in two near the coast. We already saw the Kitakami Bridge (with two lost spans) near the mouth of the Kitakami River so I think it's clearer and more accurate to call this the Onagawa.

Also, I said yesterday that the various ladders were to help paint and maintenance crews. Obviously, that was wrong. This bridge has never been painted.

It looks like I'm standing by some flood gates that were damaged during the tsunami. There was a lot of damage along the coast, but almost no damage to this bridge.
