Bandai Bridge, Niigata
(3.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
After having undergone three incarnations since the Meiji period, today's version of Bandai Bridge dates from 1929 and stands as a symbol of Niigata both for its Showa architecture and historical importance. As the first bridge across the Shinano River, it brought about greater commerce between communities on the opposite banks. After the destruction of the first two wooden versions, the third features a reinforced concrete design. (A nearby shopping district displays materials from the first two in an underground passage.) Embark on a boat tour along the river, or simply find a nice place on the banks to sit down on the grace under Japanese cherry blossoms and enjoy the view. With our custom trip planner, Niigata attractions like Bandai Bridge can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • You may walk when staying in Hotel Okura, the Smarmy. When the weather is good comfort in it. Walking distance to realize the size of the Shinano River. Note because once in a while comes a huge race bike (laughs).

First and second generation 2 is a wooden bridge, as dishwasher 5 channel current was as part of the bridge. Imagine that I was standing there at the time how River has a long bridge, can be realized. It was about three times the current length.
