Megane Bridge

Bridge
Megane (“Eyeglasses”) Bridge is a railroad bridge on the Kamaishi Line of the East Japan Railway Company (JR East). Its official name is Miyamori River Bridge. The curves of the arches in this stone bridge supposedly look like eyeglasses, hence the nickname. It was built in 1915 and extensively restored in 1943. Three of the original supports still exist. Every weekend, the bridge is illuminated from sunset till about 10:00 p.m., and it is a favorite photographic subject for railroad fans.
