Harimaya Bridge is the most recognizable landmark in downtown Kochi City. This is because the bridge was the setting for an ancient and tragic love story. In the story, a Buddhist priest buys a hairpin for his secret lover from a store beside the bridge. Being a priest, he is forbidden to have such a relationship. He is soon found out and sent away. I'm crying as I type this.
