Kintaikyo Bridge, Iwakuni

Traverse the five arches of Kintaikyo 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. Our Iwakuni trip planning app makes visiting Kintaikyo Bridge and other Iwakuni attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The toll costs 300 yen. It is characterized by an arch like a glasses bridge. It is a little far by bus from Iwakuni Station, but it is a spot where you can feel the history.

  • Relaxing half day trip there seeing the bridge with sakura (very lucky :D) and Iwakuni Castle on hill top, also nice to try iwakuni sushi in the restaurants around. Recommend to try the ice cream shop...  more »
  • Iwakuni is a beautiful bridge with five consecutive arches. It is convenient to use a good set ticket because it is paid to cross the bridge, and when it is a set ticket, i put it in kintaibashi round trip entrance ticket, ropeway (round trip), and Iwakuni castle. There is a zoo in the park on the way to the ropeway. Since Nishikiobibashi has been able to see Ukai since June, you can learn about ecology at the zoo in Umiu. The sea is a fairly large bird. The view from the castle tower of Iwakuni Castle at the top of the mountain is superb. #山口 #岩国 #錦帯橋 #岩国城 #海鵜 #Yamaguchi #JapaneseCormorant #kintaikyo #IwakuniCastle #IwakuniCastle #IwakuniCastle #IwakuniCastle #IwakuniCastle #IwakuniCastle #Iwakuni
