This bridge is so exciting and thrilling. You can enjoy it all seasons. It costs a bit 550 yen, but you should try. Good luck lol

I found this terrifying! I thought it was just going to be a standard suspension bridge, but the gaps between the wooden panels were big enough to fit a foot through, literally!!! I’m not sure if I’d say it’s a must-do attraction (at ¥550 per person as well) other than the fact that it features in most articles about Iya... More

The bridge and surrounding area are wonderful. The bridge is scary to cross, but for those who decide not to go across can walk to the other side via a regular bridge in about 5 minutes. There is a waterfall close to the bridge and the drive there is beautiful. If you drive, you will need to pay at least... More

There is a ticket charge for 550 yen per adult. It takes about 5 mins walk thru the bridge with a crystal clear river view. There is not much activity around this area, this is the only attraction I've found.

As this bridge is made of vines connected with wooden bars, walking on this bridge will make it shaking a lot, so you will find it difficult and thrilling to walk to the end of the bridge. This bridge is 14 meters above the stream, for those who have acrophobia, don't look down while walking, just keep your sight straight... More

a swing bridge, one of only 3 remaining in Japan; made originally from thick old vines (nowdays they hide strong steel cables that actually make the bridge safe to walk across). There are large gaps bewteen the steps which freek out some people but the trick is to keep walking and step in the middle of the "planks". Nice views... More

It's worth paying to cross the bridge as it's quite a thrill with the large gaps and the view down. Walks along the river past the waterfall are charming. We walked the winding road up the mountain. Beautiful views but nothing much up there. Lots of abandoned shacks, perhaps they're for seasonal graziers. Sad that the area is so poorly... More

We took the bus from 8:58 AM municipal bus from the Oboke train station - about a 25 minute ride. Few people about when we arrived and crossed the bridge alone which was nice. Afterward we walked to the waterfall and along the river path. Going back we lucked out and caught a circle tour bus at the highway. As... More

There's a waterfall nearby, a path along the river, and it's possible to continue your walk on the stones and boulders lining the river shore. Cafés , restaurants and public restrooms are located on both sides of the bridge, this is a nice spot to picnic and enjoy the views of the gorge. I didn't bother to pay and cross... More
