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.

  • Crowded during the day. Went to 11 months earlier (holiday) morning about 9 o'clock had quite a few people. Empty when I went at 8 am morning (on the bridge about five), take a lot of pics. Cross the bridge to 500 yen (day prices) also were surprised that it took.

  • Major road route first, kazura bridge until the mountain bit run (IYA-IYA River) and bus passes (along the river) and 2. We are dying to see Manneken Pis mountain routes in the mountain road is rather narrow and quite time consuming. Along the Yoshino River route (large oboke and Koboke through) and use a faster time, easy-to-operate and think. Kazura bridge, on the other hand cross traffic. No limit of the number five or more passes together and quite rough around the Center. Bridge made of chiracchkazra and heard is reinforced? In cross, "casula" are wound around the bridge made was feeling a little relieved I was. It passed 1 again I think the feeling is. Parking at the parking lot just before the bridge there is a bridge where prices were together. Simply walking from the parking lot to the bridge is different. 停meremashita in the parking lot beside the bridge, because it was a weekday. Cross it was across the elderly man with a cane, so older people any courage.

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.
