Bungo's bridge

One of the places we visited in Japan was Kitakyushu (formerly Kokura). The city has a number of bridges over its main river which have a Japanese name but also a themed designation.

Bungo Bridge is the Bridge of Sound - appropriate for this most over-enthusiastic of Wombles. So we were delighted to find the bridge - helped by the signage being in English and Japanese - and to persuade Bungo to smile, or at least to wrinkle his nose, for the camera...
