We crossed the river by means of the Marco Polo bridge – so called because it is described in THE TRAVELS OF MARCO POLO. The marble facings were long ago removed, leaving only a rough, old graceful span.†[2]

  • Thumbnail for Landscapes of Japan, 13, Bayhead bar beach and coastal village of Hiraiga.
    Landscapes of Japan, 13, Bayhead bar beach and coastal village of Hiraiga.

    Bayhead bar beach and coastal village of Hiraiga. -- Along this mountainous coastline, flat land is scarce. The homes and buildings of the small village of Hiraiga are crammed into nearly every piece of reasonably flat land above the high tide line. In much of Japan, rugged mountains separate the small areas of flat land upon which villages could be built causing the villages to be isolated from one another. The scarcity of flat land also leads to concentration of the Japanese population into those areas flat enough to build upon.

The slide shows the multiple uses of flat land in Japan. Rice fields, gardens, roads, villages and towns and an international airport all compete for part of this lowland area.
