A railway bridge that is now used as an iconic red bridge at Lake Shikotsu, the Yamasen Bridge is clearly visible from afar as you make the journey towards the Lake Shikotsu area where the yearly Ice Festival is held. Wouldn’t go all the way just to see the bridge but more for the scenic beauty of the lake and its surroundings.

In Japan, tens of railroad routes have been being taken out of service after the rapid economic growth. First, the transportation business shifted from railroads to trucks. Second, the rural areas have been depopulated. We can find many railroad ruins across Japan, some of which have turned into tourist sites. Yamasen Bridge is one on them. I just wonder how trains could overcome those ups and downs.

The Yamasen Railway Bridge spans the Chitosegawa River and is a special feature in the Shikotsu Onsen park. An interpretive sign nearby discusses the history of the bridge and the railroad that was used to transport wood from around Lake Shikotsu. The distinctive red colour of the bridge made it memorable and outstanding in the environment of a botanical park. Views of the lake and up the Chitosegawa River were very interesting. We were fortunate to witness a couple in full wedding regalia getting their wedding photographs taken on the bridge while a convoy of kayaks passed under the bridge en-route to a nautical adventure.

Standing on the bridge looking at the half frozen river streaming to the sea, the sea will not be that beautiful. Out of the white, this red is out of space.
