Iya Kazura Bridge, Miyoshi

3.8
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.

  • This place is worth a trip, 550, a small waterfall nearby, the summer should be very cool, winter is very cold, walking down the side of the grilled fish, grilled chicken skewers is very delicious, worth tasting.

  • It's a typical tourist attraction, and when planning a trip, it's definitely going to go, but it actually feels like nothing special. Rattan bridge is actually Car, it is safe to walk on. Unless: One, wearing the easy to lose slippers, or two or one side walked a self-portrait but again hand wet sweat dropped the phone. Many of the visitors walk slowly, except for fear of heights, mainly because of the cost of the bridge, which is not cheap enough to stretch the bridge's enjoyment. Of course, it was a difficult experience to take a child with another one.

  • The feeling of walking on the bridge is amazing and happy, because the foot of the wood is relatively open, foot short as I do slow. The bridge is not high, but the water is running. Plus everyone slowly, so easy to shake, so all kind of surprised. The joy is that the wind is so beautiful, so comfortable. Just have no mood to enjoy it.

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.
