18 stunning bridges

One of Japan's entries on Frikoo's list of 18 stunning bridges from around the world is the Kintaikyo Bridge, in Iwakuni Prefecture.

First built in 1673, the five original wooden arches of the Kintaikyo stood for nearly 300 years, until they were destroyed by a typhoon in 1950. The current arches were built 3 years later.
