Tsujunkyo Bridge, Yamato-cho
Categories: Historic Sites, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Walk across Tsujunkyo Bridge, the largest stone aqueduct in Japan, and feel the vibrations as it discharges large quantities of water from its 27.3 m high (90 ft) arch. An important irrigation structure built in 1854, this advanced piece of masonry makes it possible for water to flow into a higher area of the Shiroito Plateau for farming. Still functional after 160 years, the aqueduct makes a spectacular sound as it releases water. Check the aqueduct's release schedule to see it at its most impressive, when it discharges water, or take a guided tour. Try the croquets in nearby Yamato-cho, a specialty local lunch option. Take a look at our Yamato-cho itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Tsujunkyo Bridge and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

渡るルートで近くまで行きましたが手前から立ち入り禁止で橋も見えず近づけないので、道の駅から見ました。見た感じは立派で地震の被害を受けてる感じは無かったです。早く復興して放水も復活するといいですね。Went up near the route across from the front in a roped-off bridge is visible, but not because I saw from Station Road. Look good, feel good and are affected by the earthquake. It is nice and early reconstruction and revival are continuing.show original
小学校の教科書にも載っていた水を通すための橋です。 土日祝日には何回か橋の上から水が放出されます。レンガつくりの橋が昔からあったことに驚きです。Is the bridge through the water was on the elementary school textbooks. On weekends or holidays water is emitted from the top of the bridge several times. Bricks to make bridges had traditionally is a surprise.show original
熊本地震の影響は受けたものの、崩れなかったとは、驚異の技術だと思います。何度も訪れたことがあり、橋の中央からの放水は豪快です。熊本市から高千穂に行く途中にあり、高千穂から阿蘇へと、日本らしい自然景観を楽しみながら、ドライブできます。I didn't go to pieces despite the adverse effects of the Kumamoto earthquake with amazing technology. And have visited many times, water from the middle of the bridge is exciting. You can drive from the Takachiho to ASO, Japan seems to be natural scenery, while, on the way from Kumamoto to Takachiho.show original
