Strolling along Nakashima River you’ll encounter an array of scenic stone bridges, one of which is Spectacles Bridge (Meganebashi), named for the reflection of its arches in the water, resembling a pair of eyeglasses. One of the oldest stone arch bridges in Japan, it was built in 1634 by a monk and is deemed an Important Cultural Property. On a pleasant riverside walk, stop by and admire the famous bridge, or take a postcard-like photograph of the spectacled reflection if the water is still.

The bridge of the ordinary. Hydrangea bloom seems to be shone with the surrounding hydrangeas. Allows it down all the way on both sides of the bridge, and the stone heart-shaped stone in the back taking pictures seems to be prophecy love. I was looking for a high school student couple.

  • The tourist bus "Nagasaki between this course", stopped by. Bus stop, tortoiseshell Ezaki tortoiseshell store, I walked a little bit. It is named after looks like glasses with his relatively small stone bridge, on the river. Nakashima River bridge this bridge according to the Guide, the changes in the filling pull of the tide water, so have flooded many times, in recent years at Nagasaki flood of 0/1982 (1982) part is collapsed. For bypass canals built in the 0/1988 (1988) on the right bank now that seems no longer have to worry about water damage. Have to Nakashima River revetment Heartstone is becoming popular as a power spot. Go to the other side across the stepping stones for young couples, wanted to take pictures.

  • Nice historical place -- an ancient bridge across a quiet stream in the city centre. A lot of tourist, both local and overseas, come here to take pictures.
  • Really beautiful place and visiting megane Bridge on a hot day was really relieving
  • Unique area. Very historical. Worth going.
  • Cool attraction in Nagasaki. Would recommend seeing this if you are in town.
  • Interesting for a quick visit. Don't expect anything grand.
