We arrived on a Friday afternoon in mid autumn and thought we'd avoid the crowds by going on a weekday, but we were wrong. The huge, ugly multi-level parking area located just next to the vine bridge was full of group tour buses, whose patrons also filled the bridge itself, the souvenir shops, and the many little restaurants around the...

The bridge is totally picturesque and lovely in its setting and crossing it is a must f you've made it this far. It is a bit scary. If at all possible the Oku Kazurabashi feels more authentic and less touristic, so go there if you can

The bridge itself is quite pretty and quaint, but the monstrosity of a car park that has been built to access it made the visit a disappointing experience. We didn't bother paying to walk across the bridge, having already paid to use the car park. However the waterfall is nice to visit, and the little noodle place right in front... More

We paid 550 yens per person, tourist rate, to walk across this beautiful bridge. It is an adventure! We did pause at the mid point to take photos. We also waited for the bus load of tourists to leave the bridge before we started our unique experience. While we waited for our turn, we visited the Biwa waterfall nearby. Highly... More

We stayed in a Japanese hotel in walking distance. After reading some negative reviews I decided it was not for me. But arriving there on a sunny afternoon it was not busy and the bridge looked beautiful and inviting. Pfff it proved quite a challenge with my little fear of heights. Glad we visited and walked a bit upstream to... More

This is very much on the tourist trail in the area. It does make for a great experience to be mid way over a rapidly running river with not a great deal below one! However the admission fee is heavily overpriced at Y500. The waterfall on the other side of the bridge is lovely and really worthwhile viewing.

A relic of old times, the vine bridge gives you a nice back in time feeling Crossing it is really worth the effort if you'd like to understand the construction better and enjoy the view on the river. Though it might be a bit scary if you have vertigo...
