Amazing Japan’s Moon Bridge (PIC)

| July 31, 2010

A moon bridge is usually a highly arched pedestrian bridge, which in its wooden form may require the walker to initially climb and also when descending. This moon bridge type is associated with gardens in China and Japan, and is called a drum bridge in Japan. This type of moon bridge was originally designed as a means to allow pedestrians to cross canals while allowing the passage of barges beneath. When constructed using the climbing ascent and descent this had the further advantage of not using space from the adjoining fields for approaches. I would like to give credit to Washington University for helping us photo-snap this serene and amazing Moon’s Bridge.
