October 3, 2017 Lake Biwa Canal and Suiro kaku

We learned the history of a modernization project in Kyoto—the development of the Lake Biwa Canal. The Lake Biwa Canal was constructed in the 1890s as a waterway to connect Japan’s largest lake, Lake Biwa, and the city of Kyoto. Suiro kaku is a brick-made bridge, with a series of arches, built as a part of Lake Biwa Canal.
