Tsujunkyo Bridge, Yamato-cho

4.3
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Yamato-cho
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.

    I came for the first time. Was unfortunately was betrayed to the weather forecast, it starts to rain, but views of the bridge was beautiful. After restoration work since the quake also I would like to come. You could see from the way-station parking lot is a little removed from the State Highway. Rice's rice fields and Lycoris was growing on the views of the bridge.
