This Bright Red Bridge Is the Oldest Existing Suspension Bridge in Japan.

This bright red bridge crosses the Nagara River at the point where the river curves to the west of Mt. Ogura in the northern part of Mino, and it is the oldest existing modern suspension bridge in Japan. The bridge was completed in August of the 5th year of the Taisho Period. The bridge has a length of 113 meters, a span of 116 meters, and a width of 3.1 meters. When it was constructed, its span was the longest in Japan, so it is a modern structure of great historical value.
