Tsujunkyo Bridge, Yamato-cho

#1 of 15 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.
