Taushubetsu River Bridge: A Concrete Arch Bridge That Stands the Test of Time – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Constructed in 1937, Taushubetsu River Bridge is a reminder of the days when trains ran across concrete bridges to transport wood used in construction for the war effort. The decommissioned bridge is located amidst breathtaking scenery, making it a must-visit spot for photographers, especially in the Fall when the bridge is reflected beautifully in the lake surrounding it. However, the harsh Hokkaido climate takes a constant toll and it is not clear how much longer it will survive. Visit soon before this unique sight is lost forever to the ravages of nature.
