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.

  • Was in mainland Japan for work and got to go to the Kintai Bridge for roughly an hour. Plenty of vendors in the parking area and up on the street on both sides of the bridge. You have to pay a few dol...  more »
  • You might try crossing once takes a toll. I recommend seeing behind the bridge from the River before crossing the. River Bridge take back in Iwakuni Castle is also great point. Nearby pine trees down the spear, kikko shrine and mekada House is a lot.

  • 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.
