|August 2007 (37.343 Degrees, 138.482 Degrees) Aumegawa Bridges|
Another photo of the Aumegawa (a better spelling may be Oumigawa) Bridge in Niigata. It looks like the bridge owner has encouraged the growth of ivy on the piers. There's already so much greenery around this bridge that no more is needed. Also after earthquakes, one might assume they would remove the ivy to check for shear cracks on the piers. However, this was apparently not the case after the 2007 Kashiwazaki Earthquake. Although the bearings were damaged, the ivy remained in place.
