Uji Bridge is one of the oldest bridges in Japan, having been constructed in 646 by a Budhist priest. Its story is carved in Japan's oldest stone inscription and it is mentioned in several traditional stories, such as the Tale of Genji. Washed away by floods several times along history, the present bridge is a modern reconstruction dating from 1996.
