ここに来るまで、きんたいばし、と思っていました。 思っていたより、大きかったというのが第一印象。 立派なアーチ型の橋も見栄えがしますが、川の流れを整える石畳をぜひ見るべきです。400年前のもの、そのものです。Poultry up to come here, Taiba, and thought. That was larger than I thought, first impression. Pitching up the flow of the River look splendid arched bridge, but should look at. It is 400 years old, itself.show original
平日昼間に行ってみた。時間帯が早かったためか観光客もまばらでさびれた観光地の印象…天気が曇りだったので追い討ち。錦帯橋はキレイな形ですが渡るのに300円も必要です。I went on weekday mornings. The impression of the early hours for tourists in sparsely populated and deserted tourist destination. In peril because the weather was cloudy. 300 yen is required to cross the kintai bridge is beautiful.show original
Cherry blossom or Sakura season is the best time to visit here. The weather will be a perfect temperature for walking the bridge, taking the tram up to Iwakuni castle, and you can follow the road back down for a nice walk.
Paying to cross a bridge felt weird. Awesome structure though. There's an ice cream shop with 100 flavors on the other side.
Nice weather and view in sakura season
The center piece of Iwakuni, a must visit.
