15921 Kintaikyo           Discovered 1997 Nov. 1 by A. Nakamura at Kuma Kogen.
Kintaikyo is one of the three most famous bridges in Japan, known collectively as Sanmeikyo. It spans the Nishikigawa River in Yamaguchi prefecture. The original 193-m-long wooden five-arch bridge was constructed in 1673. After its destruction by a typhoon, it was reconstructed in 1953, using the same design.
