Foreign Friday Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Other Apps By Nancy - February 03, 2012 Spectacle Bridge Nagasaki, Japan April 1980 Built in 1634, Spectacle Bridge spans the Nakajima River in Nagasaki. When the river is high, the bridge resembles a pair of vintage spectacles, as the arches are reflected in the water. Spectacle Bridge Neighborhood Nagasaki, Japan April 1980 Unfortunately, when my group saw the bridge, the river was very low, so I drew my attention to the surrounding neighborhood.

One side of the river seems to be very old, while the other side appears to be much more modern.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplySissySeesFebruary 3, 2012 at 7:07 AMNeat! I love bridges, especially older ones.
