Kintaikyo Bridge

錦帯橋

Kintaikyo Bridge is ranked as one of Japan’s three most famous bridges, and is a wooden construction with five consecutive arched bridge that span the clear streams of the Nishikigawa River in Iwakuni City. It was built in 1673 by the Iwakuni clan’s lord Kikkawa Hiroyoshi. With a total length of 193 meters and a width of five meters, the bridge has been constructed using timberwork technique involving joints and coupling. Although it was swept away by a typhoon in 1950, it was restored in 1953. There are numerous opportunities to appreciate the scenery in all four seasons such as cormorant fishing during the summer and colorful changing leaves in the autumn, yet the blossoming cherry trees in spring are particularly beautiful, and the area has been designated as one of Japan’s top 100 places to see cherry blossoms.
