Known as a source of inspiration for artists and lovers alike, Harimaya Bridge features in numerous hit songs and movies. This 20 m (65 ft) red arched bridge stands side by side with the surrounding department stores in the heart of the city. Torn down and rebuilt many times throughout history, the tiny bridge is the setting of an old local folk song, in which a Buddhist priest buys a hairpin for his sweetheart. Look for the monument to this song at the foot of the bridge, which draws scores of tourists.

  • It is the town bridge. Satisfaction because there is only about 5 m walk, remember you can't win, but disappointed as famous.

  • Know when you visited here for the first time 15 years ago, this is the harimaya bridge, was dumbfounded. And from it has come up several times, now that in its own way also I wonder if there are feeling. Yosakoi-Bushi too became very famous in too many people are expected to visit here, would I. Here you will also feel Japan's disappointing as they like.

  • Harimayabashi is right nearby a hotel. It makes you ignoring easily that place. However, the water along the stream is clear enough and small stones wrapped by green sheet. Beautiful!
  • The bridge is just soso, the better attraction is the clock opposite the bridge.
  • It's nice, but not worth a detour if you are not nearby.
  • The bridge is pretty underwhelming but the colors are vibrant.
  • Beautiful place
