It is a bridge. Beautiful, yes, exciting, not so much. May be because I am a mechanical engineer, not a civil engineer. You will have to pay to cross it, so if you do not want to pay for it, park the other side of...More

Originally built to withstand constant flooding of the Nishiki River, the bridge's 1673 engineering was so sound that apart from introducing nails for its 1953 rebuild, it met modern standards without alteration to its original design. With a series of five wooden arches, the bridge...More

Stunning scenery. Peaceful atmosphere. Memorable experience. I visited Kintai Bridge during the chilly winter in January 2017. Although 1++ hours was required to reach the location, the time spent on commuting was really worthwhile. There are quite a number of things to do around the...More
