  • This red-painted old railway bridge is active as a pedestrian overpass is now disused. The oldest buildings extant in Japan, with the movable bridge can sail boats under the bridge, so to lift vertically middle of 507.2 m long bridge (24.2 m, Elevator difference of 23 m). Learn history while hearing the explanation from the staff who walked from Okawa city, Fukuoka Prefecture, but the tour is, it was so much fun.
