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.

  • Location, has become a landmark of the Kochi harimayabashi is smaller than expected. There was sign of instructions describing the origin of the bridge, in front of the bridge and the hotel souvenir shop and West Japan Railway. Tourists were taking pictures.

  • A souvenir shop that is placed between harimayabashi. Red stands out, but just a few steps in cross as of small bridge and no impact at all. I don't bother to do this trip. I even walked by chance came. I think the clock is still across the road is better. (If the time clock runs)
