Spectacles Bridge (Meganebashi), Nagasaki
(3.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 川面に映って”ロイドメガネ”(若い人は分からないでしょうね)のような姿を作る眼鏡橋は愛嬌があって単なる無機質な石橋にはない親近感を感じさせてくれます。 Was here for? I like that. Repeat repair, similar to other bridges over Nakashima River in, flood received damage many times repeated even as it was historical presence spared the spill as Japan's oldest stone arch bridge. 17th-century Christian prohibition under the Tang Temple was erected at the same time and in the Nakashima River built in one, holds a respectable title example of Ishibashi, Japan 3 Lords bridge and country important cultural asset.

  • 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.
