Niigata, Japan's Bridges: Yasaka Bridge across the U River (2)
August 2007 (N37.3658° E138.5438°) Yasaka Bridge
Another view of the Yasaka Bridge over the U River. I've mentioned the Japanese penchant for objets d'art at the ends of their bridges. I'm not sure what the objects on the Yasaka Bridge are meant to signify. Maybe some kind of foliage or a trained seal balancing a ball on it's nose?
