3.9/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web
Spanning a lush river valley, Iya Kazura Bridge stands as one of the few remaining examples of an architectural design that incorporated bundles of thick vines as the main building material.

Keep in mind that although the bridge appears precarious, it is backed up by iron cables and anchored to trees on each end.
