Looking for a bridge in Japan 2019/4/11 00:24
My mother served in the US Army during the Korean War. She was stationed in Japan. I have a picture from about 1952 of a walking bridge in a park over a stream. I'd like to find out where the bridge is (my mother has passed away). Are there resources like clubs, bridge 'directories' or something similar that I can use to search for the bridge? Are there places I can post the photo and, perhaps, maybe someone recognizes it?

If you can post your photo to a free photo-sharing site, then post the link here, so that the forum members can see it, that might lead to some helpful pointers.

Well it looks as thought it's at a shrine (can see the Tori gate in the background along with one person being dressed in shrine clothes). Most shrines don't have stone bridges so this should limit the number of shrines it should be.....

Thank you for your helpfulness.

I found another picture from the same park.

And I think I found the site from which my mother took the picture. You may be interested in comparing the difference between the 1952 and current day photos:

WOW! is all i can say after seeing hakata14 post the location. This was a 126.8 million to 1 shot for getting the right person answer and hakata14 is your person. Don't think everyone else on this forum would have been able to help you there. Big Thank You to hakata14.
