A building(bridge) in Kawazu-machi --- Homework



The most beautiful (Not really beautiful, but famous) building in Kawazu-machi is The Loop Bridge. It’s a huge looping bridge which is standing in mountains.

Before the bridge was built, the road was very winding. In 1978, there was a big earthquake, and the old road was seriously damaged. The bridge was built as safer way, in 1981. It used to be very popular because it was novel shape.

This bridge is 1064m long, 45m high, and has diameter of 80m. It rotates twice.

You will feel a exciting strange impression when you are driving on the bridge.

You must go, but be careful. Do not drive at over speed.
