Japanese-built bridge in Vietnam faces collapse
An ornate wooden bridge built by Japanese merchants centuries
ago in the central Vietnamese town of Hoi An was almost completely
submerged by flood waters over the weekend and faces imminent
collapse. The photo was taken in September, 1996. The picturesque
18-meter bridge, built between 1593 and 1596 by Japanese merchants
who lived and worked in Hoi An, is now a tourist site and a symbol of
friendship between Japan and Vietnam.
