Perhaps due to the sea breeze, the pedestrian bridge at Higashi-Shinagawa was rusted to shreds

This used to be the ocean, so although I couldn't smell the scent of the sea, the sea breeze might still be blowing. The pedestrian bridge over the Higashi Shinagawa Metropolitan Road was so rusty that it made me think so.

In contrast to the unwelcome sea breeze because it causes salt damage, salt has always been a precious commodity because sodium, an ingredient of salt, is an essential mineral for the human body. In Japan, a salt monopoly system was established from 1905 to 1997 to stabilize supply, demand, and prices, and in Europe, salt is the source of wealth in Salzburg, where Mozart was active.

Even though salt is such an important mineral, too much of it can be harmful, which makes salt a mysterious substance. Too little is not good, and too much is not good. Many crops cannot survive in an environment with too much salt. When salt damage occurs, it not only hinders the growth of crops and reduces the agricultural value of the land, but it also makes it uninhabitable for humans.

When you think about it, after the victory in the Third Punic War, Carthage, which Rome hated so much, never came back to life again, and the salt was spread on Carthage's land so that not even a single weed could grow there, it looks like the work of an evil animal.
