Kappa Bashi

October 24. Kappa Bashi (or Kappa Bridge) is the symbol of Kamikochi, a small town located in the Northern Japan Alps. It was originally built in 1872, and crosses Azusa River. It's unknown how the name of the bridge came about, but some say kappa used to live there. Kappa images and souvenirs can be found throughout the area. More on that later...
