Uji Bridge

Ujibashi Bridge, along with Karahashi Bridge in Seta and Yamazaki Bridge, is one of the three oldest bridges in Japan. It is said to have first been erected in 646 by Doto, a priest of Gango Temple in Nara. This graceful bridge blends in with the beautiful mountains around the Uji River.

That's a nice looking bridge. Good pictures. The hills look nice with all the colors.
