Iya Kazura Bridge, Miyoshi

(3.8/5 based on 440+ 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. 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.

  • Large oboke Koboke, IYA tourism must a place. After knowing the cost 550 Yen to cross, but was off 50 Yen with coupons for hotels, etc.. Common bridge well, look good and are laying what appeared to be a wire under and there is over wood. But it's not wide and slipped even as slide down to the bottom. thrill is perfect. Die without a doubt in fact falls to expect only a perfect kazura bridge if possible or cannot, or in severe cases. Immediately without waiting for arrived around noon in late February, but filthy. It falls be seen soon Biwa falls, across the bridge.
