This rusty old bridge is located along a lonely stretch of highway in the Nippondaira hills near Shizuoka city, Japan. The bridge provides access over the Nippondaira expressway which is a popular road for speeders in cars and motorcycles. The story in this area is that a young girl was killed long ago while crossing the road at this spot before the bridge was built. In his grief the girl’s father spent his family fortune to build this bridge which many believe is now haunted by the ghost of his daughter. Drivers on the Nippondaira expressway sometimes report seeing the specter of a young girl standing atop the bridge as they drive below. The old mountain trail which this bridge was designed to service is now rarely used and as a result few hikers ever have cause to cross over the bridge which today stands alone and unused.
