Cape Shiokubi Arch Bridge, along the Ome Line in Hokkaido near Hakodate. Although the Ome Line still runs, just barely, the bridges along its line are crumbling as they were built in the 1940s, and have been replaced with utilitarian steel monsters. Fortunately, some of these arched beauties have survived, probably because it would have been too expensive to remove them so they've been left to the elements.
