Seta Bridge, crossing the Seta River. Click on the image for next one in the series.

The Seta Bridge, the oldest crossing point of the Seta River. In the past this bridge carried the main road from Tokyo to Kyoto, and therefore was strategically important, resulting in battles for its control. One famous battle, between two princes fighting for control of Japan, took place around and on the bridge in the year 672. (Photograph taken 30th October 2012.)
