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.

After new kamihashi, Takeshi bridge in floods caused by torrential rains led to the catastrophe of 8/6/1993 has disappeared to. All in the Ishibashi Memorial Park. I got off at Cherry Island Pier in the tram, in about 10 minutes on foot.

  • Beautiful. 😁😁😁
  • Real stone is great. Beneath the stone, there is a man-made river. And muddy river water that has shallow water around the river is sandy, so kids can play and not too clean. Hotel and display video or model material is very high quality. Nice to be available free of charge.

  • 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
