Looking at all the posted pictures, I noticed none was taken at night in winter. I posted one I took in late January. It was cold and snowy, no one was there, and me and wife took a nice evening stroll. It was serene, gorgeous,...More

The sudden contrast between the buildings, the green of the trees, the blue of the sky and the red of the bridge were amazing. We crossed the bridge many times during our exploration of Takayama.

This bridge is located at the edge of the historic tourist zone and a great place to meeting point or spot to gain your bearings. Besides it is a great place to snap a photo.

Discovered this bridge by chance while wandering along the road. It is very photogenic because it is painted red and it stands out. Lovely views on either side of this bridge. Traffic does cross so keep an eye out when taking photos.

Judging from photos, this bridge offers views of some attractive cherry blossom in season, and possibly of leaves in fall, but when we visited in May the vistas were ho-hum, and there is nothing to distinguish the bridge other than its red paint. You'll probably...More

This bridge was the meeting place for our tour after visiting the old town area. Except for its vermilion railings, the bridge is rather non-nondescript. However oh what a difference those railings make. It becomes a wonderful area to take photographs. Unfortunately the cherry trees...More
