Iya Kazura Bridge, Miyoshi

3.9
#1 of 85 in Sightseeing in Tokushima Prefecture
Bridge Scenic Walking Area
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. Dating back to the 12th century, this bridge was once one of 13 different crossing points in the valley. Keep in mind that although the bridge appears precarious, it is backed up by iron cables and anchored to trees on each end.

  • It's one of the 3 extraordinary bridges in Japan. The spaces between the steps made it really exciting to walk across the bridge. It's one-way crossing only. Definitely worth visiting!  more »

Where to stay in Miyoshi

Rich in sleeping options, the majority of Miyoshi's accommodations surround the picturesque Iya Valley district. Take your pick from traditional ryokans, private cabin rentals, and premium hotels. If you want something more remote, think mountain huts and camping, although come with your own transport as buses are scarce. For an authentic experience on your Miyoshi vacation, opt for one of the ancient thatched-roof farmhouses. In the winter ski season (December through March), cabins fill up quickly.
