I would like a piece to remind me how the Bong bridge was made out of Japanese steel.

"Some people find it ironic that while Bong fought against the Japanese, and there was a major steel mill located within sight distance of the Bong Bridge, the steel for the arch span of Bong's namesake bridge was imported from Japan."
