Ishibashi Park, Kagoshima

#6 of 13 in Museums in Kagoshima
Ishibashi Park is a park in Hama-machi, Kagoshima, Japan. At the end of the Edo period (late 19th century), local lord Shimazu Shigehide had five bridges, collectively called the Gosekkyō ("five stone bridges"), built across the Kōtsuki River. Two of them collapsed in floods in 1993. The remaining three were moved to a new location and restored. Ishibashi Park consists of these three bridges and a museum.HistoryOn August 6, 1993, torrential rain in Kagoshima Prefecture led to flooding that caused two of the five bridges, Takeno-bashi Bridge and Shinkan-bashi Bridge, to collapse. The other three bridges, Tamae-bashi Bridge, Nishida-bashi Bridge, and Kōrai-bashi Bridge, also suffered enormous damage.After the flooding, the three bridges that withstood it were moved to a new location where they could be repaired, restored and better protected. In 2000, this place was opened as Ishibashi Park.OutlineThe park is at the mouth of the Inari River, next to national highway Route 10, and was originally a location for the Gion-no-su gun battery used during the Anglo-Satsuma War in 1863.Nishida-bashi Bridge is the nearest bridge to the memorial hall. A large amount of money was spent on it, because the daimyo (territorial lords) used it when travelling on sankin kōtai, which obligated lords to live for a year alternately in Edo (Tokyo) and in their own feudal domains, to show their loyalty to the shogunate. Kōrai-bashi Bridge connected Kajiya-chō and Kōrai-chō, where there lived many samurai who would later overthrow the Tokugawa shogunate. Of the three bridges, Tamae-bashi Bridge, which was originally furthest upstream but now closest to the sea, retains most of the original features of the stone bridges.

  • In the aftermath of the floods caused by torrential rain 5 0/1993 (1993) 8/6, "kotsuki GOISHI bridge (tamae bridge, new kamihashi, Nishida bridge, koraibashi, Takeshi bridge)" known as the bridge of the "new kamihashi" hit town bridge two of the warlords, the bridge had leaked. So we remained three bridges to tell future generations as a historical product, Ishibashi Memorial Park was open to the 0/2000 according to River and moved to its current location. Magnificent cherry island overlooking a lush green lawn, bridge under gently flowing water, parks... and the value is used as a place of recreation and relaxation for citizens.

  • Beautiful. 😁😁😁
  • Three stone bridges that had been set up on the five bridges in the city of Krabi were moved and saved here. The bridge can be used to convey the skills of a mason in the later half of the river, especially the West Land bridge, which was built in three (1846) years, is a very popular bridge to explain (every year the clan's owners are moving from country to river). Stoke should have gone through this bridge and left the Deer Island City. "Traffic" Deer Island City View Light Week tour bus labeled Front course"Stone Bridge Remember Park front" car stop

  • Is a collection of stone remained at 8.6 flood Park. Is the place to meet old stone bridge for the citizens of Kagoshima City. I'm worried will meet well recently in the course of the overseas tourists included good breaks. I often come to take pictures of each of the four seasons. Summer is good for children's play place.
