Spectacles Bridge in Nagasaki

There are many historical and scenic spots in Nagasaki where only one area was open to Chinese and Holland by the national isolation policy in the Tokugawa era. So, Nagasaki has a quite different air with Chinatown and Catholic churches. It is said that the Meganebashi or Spectacles Bridge was the oldest stone arch bridge built in Japan in 1634. It received he nickname “Spectacles Bridge” because its two arches and their reflection in the water create the image of a pair of spectacles.
