Anyway, isn't that sort of ironic for a country so good at building bridges?
Honestly speaking, I have never seen those kind of signs.
Where have you seen those kind of signs?
There were some adjudgments dealed faithfully with such kind of racism.
And in Japan, racism is not legal.

Why do you want to disscus about those kind of things in Bridge thread?


The name of this bridge is Kintai-bridge.
This bridge was made 17c.
Off course, several times, this bridge was swept out.
And this bridge has the brother bridges in China.

Wow! Amazing. It's fascinating that Japan has some of the most amazing structures on earth and yet is located in such a crappy geological region.

I was responding to a post by BHK24 which said nothing about bridges, it only said "I just admire Japan overall. Just an amazing culture" So I commented about bridges and also culture in response. As it happens I have seen many of these bridges in person and I think that are magnificent. Does that mean I can't disagree with a post about the "amazing" culture of a racist country?

Now if you really haven't seen those signs and think I am making it all up, well I'll give you the benefit of the doubt -- here are more than one hundred examples please have a look:

http://www.debito.org/roguesgallery.html

real racist signs in Japan

And actually the reason for all those signs, there really are absolutely no laws against racial discrimination in Japan -- the only G8 country where that is the case.

But, again, the bridges are lavish and spectacular in Japan. Just wanted to voice an opinion on the poster's opinion that the country had an "amazing" culture.

There's a difference between Japan being "littered with" no foreigner signs and a few signs in the remote countryside or strip clubs. There's a difference between a few bigoted dance club owners and South African apartheid. Not all Japanese have the ethical standards of seedy establishment owners.

No, the only ironic thing is your hypocrisy by generalizing a nation to be racist.

actually, the fact that japan is a chain of islands (and two-thirds mountainous) is why they have so many gorgeous bridges.

Saruhashi( monky bridge)
in 620, original was made...
Quote:
Saruhashi Bridge is one of "Japan's Three Odd Bridges" and the entire area including the bridge has been registered as Scenic Spot in 1932.

The characteristic of Saruhashi is that no piers are used to support the bridge vertically. From both ends, the four layers of horizontal combination of woods are used to support and the reason to use this method was the valley was too steep to use the piers.

The construction year is unknown, but there are other records of the bridge style existed already in 1676. The oldest estimation is Saruhashi was complete over 500 years ago. Currently, the bridge was restored back in 1984, and 33 meters high, 3.3 meters wide and 31 meters long.

Saruhashi over Kakegawa Gorge shows many faces depending on the season and it is truly a scenic spot.
