Tsujunkyo Bridge, Yamato-cho
(4.4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Saw tsūjun bridge discharges to, went flying car from outside 13 when in time with my family. About 12 o'clock lunch, eat dinner, she waited for the water. No spraying is at 13. Water stop signs without, without writing and stop home page, too many times to call home phone answering machine. I went there on Sunday and, camera holding a lot of people waiting for water. Kirashi sibille, confirmed through tsūjun bridge Museum and water stop in about 15 inches of small paper was pasted it to the door. Notice in the paper we will look at it, I gave up and went back, but others were still waiting. A great nuisance for people who had planned to go further and people come from far is talking about. Water stop if you know anyone that should install signage.

  • 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.
