These bridges are fun to cross and photograph; they are now reinforced with steel cables for safety, but the surroundings are so picturesque so as to be irresistible. Beautiful country in the Iya Valley.

This place is beautiful and interesting. The lesser known couple bridge is much more of the beaten track and natural.

I expected a rope bridge but it was a vine bridge with cable supports and boards to walk on. For a foreigner to go here off the beaten track they will need to rent a car and be open to a quiet forested valley for hiking and a few side trips. There is a little restaurant there...check the hours, though.

It's a very special and beautiful bridge - must-go if you travel around this area. You needa pay like 500yen something to walk across but it's all worth it. It feels quite dangerous walking along it! too bad there isnt free parking near the bridge area. You have to pay for parking in order to stop by this bridge as... More

We hired a taxi for the day. 25800 yen. The driver knew what we wanted to see. The Iya Valley is very beautiful and interesting. Old houses, step valleys. And here, an illustration of the hard, old times. It is weird to walk over the bridge, and see the River through the holes.

This is a pretty definite must see when travelling in the region. The bridge is made from big vines and the construction is actually really interesting. Massive beams on either side support the bridge. Although it may look flimsy be assured that it is supported by hidden steel cables so it is structurally sound. The crossing is a tad challenging,...

Crossing this bridge looks more dangerous than it is, but maybe challenging for kids. Be sure the explore the trails along the river while you're there.

It's fun to cross the vine bridge and kids would especially enjoy the adventure but note that the area is a now big tourist destination so be prepared for crowds.

This bridge is a delightful treat to walk across. The construction is really clever and beautiful; the bridge is made of vines that have been reinforced with cables and rebar. Apparently, the vines are replaced every three years. The slats you walk on are separated with gaps that make views down to the river below quite thrilling. The bridge also... More

Bit of a tourist trap nowadays, that is accessed at the top of a concrete car park but well worth walking down and crossing the rickety old-world bridge made of ivy vine. It shakes and rocks and most take ginger, little steps, whilst clinging onto dear life as the river below gushes, readily consuming whatever falls through the partings between... More
