Short but thrill

550 yen to cross a really short but thrilling bridge. Each gap is about the size of a foot, need to be super cautious with each step

Seemingly I looked short, but felt it very for a long time when I passed.I passed absorbedly and forgot to take a photograph in the middle of a bridge.I was not able to afford to see the beautiful scenery from a bridge.I was scared, but was splendid あまりの緊張感に、橋の途中で景色を眺める事も写真に収めることも忘れてしまった。 幼児を抱っこして渡っているパパ、凄いと思った。 徒歩2分ほどの滝も必見です。

It is a very old bridge used by the locals long time ago. It is exciting to walk across it because there are big gaps on the bridge.

I stayed in a hotel nearby and for some reason thought it was more in the middle of nowhere, but it's actually not too far off a main road. I actually had to drive by one end of the vine bridge to get to my hotel. It is very pretty and as others have recommended, if you are afraid of... More

This was our destination on a day outing from Imabari, after having stopped by at Oboke Gorge earlier. We were directed to park at one end and paid 300 yen. We walked to the starting point and as we reached, we could see the bridge from this path. It's a suspension bridge, but one of its kind and unique. Some... More

The Kasura bridge was built by feudal warriors hundreds of years ago. It was purposely made of vines that grow in the area- strong enough to bear the weight of many people and designed to be cut down if and when the enemy tried to cross over to the other side. The area is in a mountainous area called the... More

Unfortunately, it is now quite a tourist attraction, with throngs of people crowding over when it is busy. You can only cross in one direction, and it will probably be with dozens of other people at the same time. Be aware that the bridge... More

This is claimed to be one of the three old suspension bridges in the areas. The bridge was built with rope-like materials such as crane rods.

I went to Japan thinking that i would be staying in the city. Little did I know that others had different plans for us. We drove out to Iya No Kazurabashi (vine bridge). And it is aptly named. The bridge is basically pieces of wood lashed together with vines. While beautiful and mysterious, this bridge is not for the faint... More
