Kintai Bridge, Iwakuni
(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Traverse the five arches of Kintai Bridge, a historic wooden bridge that crosses the Nishiki River. The scenic bridge has been restored several times since its construction in 1673, but still retains its continuous arch shape and exhibits intricate wooden craftsmanship and details. Walk across the pedestrian-only bridge and stop along the way to enjoy the view of the river, overlooked by the towering Mount Yokoyama and Iwakuni castle perched on its top.

  • This is one of the top 3 best preserved wooden bridges in Japan. There is a small fee for crossing on it but its worth doing so. Constructed entirely out of wood, the structure is very unique with its...  more »

  • 1 image, far from the various city and could walk. I didn't feel this way, seen by tourists. Early in the morning for you to invite. Unfortunately is not suited to this location, would be illegal on the River were not translated and tents store ice cream shop. They are do not understand value of 1 image. Administrative guidance? To those who preach a free Japan society limit seems to be off limits.

  • The scene was absolutely breathtaking beauty there. I thought I had been refreshed by that stunning view. If you're interested in historical things of Japanese, I have no doubt that Kintai Bridge is the best spot.
  • If you are in Iwakuni, you need to take a day and see the Kentai Bridge and Castle. Bring a camera because there is a lot to take pictures of. Start at the base of the Kentai bridge and purchase the ticket that allows you to cross the Kentai bridge, then I would suggest getting some ice cream before walking through the gardens and see the water fountains in the park. Then make your way twards the trolly and catch a ride to the top of the Mountain to see the Kentai Castle and Enjoy the view!
  • This is a beautiful historic wooden bridge with a unique shape in a picturesque location. If you love taking photographs or just simply want an amazing snapshot to commemorate your time in Iwakuni then I recommend swinging by. The river, the mountains and the beautiful bridge makes a great flammable memory. I recommend the area during sakura season or when there is a nice covering of snow, but any clear day is worth your while.
  • Beautiful place to visit anytime of the year. Especially during their cherry blossom festival. The trees are filled with pink cherry blossoms that make the place even more beautiful. Careful, summers are pretty hot ^_^
  • Worth the trip from Hiroshima Central. Can be combined as a day trip with the wondrous Otorii at Miyajima.
