This bridge was originally built in 1897 with the then new steel girders. After the atomic bomb blast only 250 m away the bridge partially collapsed and then in Sept Makurazaki Typhoon completed the destruction of this bridge. In 1949 the bridge was rebuilt on the same foundation. Walk across the bridge and ponder what life was like after aug 6. 1945.
The Good: History that makes one think
The Bad:
The Ugly: why the bridge had to be rebuilt
On the scuba bubble scale of 1 to 10, I give this bridge 8 bubbles for 1 surviving the original blast, and 2 for standing the test of time
