Railroad(Tokaido Line) via in front of Seiken-ji Temple
Japan

清見寺の山門前に東海道本線の走っている風景はよく話のタネになる。 

その本来は不釣り合いな取り合わせも、現在では「なんとなく」しっくりとおさまっているのは不思議だ。

山門の前から下っていく石段は線路の前で途切れているのだが、これも境内に鉄道を通した結果そうなったもの。

その代わりに線路をまたぐ橋を新たに掛けたのだが、何の変哲もないコンクリート橋のように見えるこの橋、よく見るとそのコンクリート橋の下に鉄の梁が渡されている。
この「鉄の梁」が元来の橋で「プレートガーダー」という形式なのだそうだ(竣工 1898(明治31)年5月 )。
現在のコンクリート橋はこの上を通っている(元の橋に荷重はかかっていない)だけで元の橋は廃止されたものの、原形をとどめているといった具合になっている。 
「欄干」と思われる鋳物製の柵の意匠が時代を感じさせる。

    Hello Bibouroku, your motives are very nice! They would win very much if you could increase the optical resolution a bit more (fx 20000 x 10000). So what do you think? Greetings, Patricia from Germany

    More About Japan

    The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.Text by Steve Smith.
