It feels like Rome! Who built it?
Sakuro Tanabe was just 22 years old when he designed it. There must have been a lot of pressure to build a bridge in the most noble temple in Japan. He managed to accomplish this through his passion for engineering and design, and was also was prepared to take responsibility if the bridge had failed.

He had his own policy that stated, “Every architectural structure should be perfect from any perspective.” It is indeed beautiful from any direction and perfectly matches the scenery of Nanzen-ji. Its unique scenery and continuous arches intrigues me. You can get to the top of the canal using the stone staircases.
