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.

  • 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.

  • The center piece of Iwakuni, a must visit.
  • Beautiful views.
