Lights Out



I've written before about how there were 5 major stone bridges commissioned in the late 1800's to cross the Kotsuki river, and how they were replaced with more modern structures in the 1990's. There are more than just the 5 now, but the majority of them, especially along the stretch within 5 miles of the Kagoshima-chuo train station are in very good condition and still look pretty new. That's why it seems so strange to me to see one of the bridges with the light globes removed and the bulbs gone. At the least, in the U.S. they've be covered over to prevent people from vandalizing them further.
