Where's Saruhashi?

Postby tōkai devotee » Sat 10.04.2008 5:09 am

I'm not sure if this question goes here, but it is about Japanese culture.

I have a copy of a print of Hiroshige's painting "Monkey Bridge" (猿橋 、Saruhashi) from the series Famous Places in the Sixty-odd Provinces (大日本六猶予集名所図会 (だいにほんろくゆうよしゅうめいしょずえ))
My questions are, where was Saruhashi and does it exist now? I've tried to find it but to no avail.

You couldn't have searched that hard. :)

First link in google is to the google map pointing to Saruhashi.

The second is the the official webpage of the bridge: http://www.city.otsuki.yamanashi.jp/data/15/05/index.html Seems to be in Otsuki in Yamanashi ken. It also has a wikipedia entry http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E7%8C%BF%E6%A9%8B

Hope that helps

Darn it! I saw the title of this thread and I thought it was going to be about someone finally locating the absconding former CEO of NOVA Nozomu Saruhashi.

I got out in time to start my own English school, but several people I know were left high and dry by that cheating son of a....

Did you ever see his office when they went searching for him on the news?
It was like a sweet from the playboy mansion.

He apparently spent thousands of dollars a week on hookers. ;)

After seeing my own company president in action when things got tough at my company, I'm just convinced that there are a lot of presidents who are just lying scumbags who would sacrifice everything to save their own skin.

I never watch TV, so I didn't actually see it myself, but I read about it online, it sounded pretty *gorgeous* as we say around here. I hope someday they do find that.... guy. I'd like to give him a swift kick in the pants or two.

I'm glad I never worked for that... guy! I had the chance to, in fact I had a couple of job interviews with Nova, one in Osaka and one in Okazaki, but I didn't feel comfortable at either. I felt it was very much a mega business that didn't care about their teachers or students.
