Small Bridge With Dragon Pattern
Oct 2019
We immediately saw this small concrete bridge when walking to the Ohara Museum of Art. The span crosses the narrow, central canal in the Bikan Historical Quarter, connecting the museum and the Old Ohara House. Its sides feature carved-dragon patterns.

I estimate that it would take no longer than 20 seconds to walk across the bridge, but most visitors seem to linger, gawking at the boats carrying tourists below. Two big resident swans also capture attention, paddling back and forth beneath the bridge, looking for tasty morsels. The span's location at the canal's northern end gives panoramic photo ops for the water scene and the converted rice warehouses on both sides that now hold other enterprises.

This is not the only bridge that crosses the canal, but it offers the first opportunity for visitors entering from the north to get an overview of the charming preserved district ahead.

This is one of those spots where people stop to either admire the view or to take pictures because of the beautiful background.

A lovely spot in Kurashiki
Nov 2019
It is a very lovely spot in old Kurashiki. We went there at night, it was nice and cool. Tree in foliage and lights made the bridge and the surrounding look great.

Photogenic

With the swans swimming under and the bride and groom being photographed, you have to give some kudos to the bridge being there. The old houses make a good backdrop, too.

Pause a moment to admire this bridge.
Dec 2017 • Couples
Very attractive small bridge that may be too easy to overlook, but is a good place to pause and enjoy the surroundings. Early 20th century, apparently designed by the collector who founded the Ohara museum nearby.

An old, traditional bridge in the Bikan quarter of Kurashiki
Feb 2018 • Solo
A traditional, picturesque little bridge. The mood is lovely: people are strolling around, or resting and watching the birds and the water leaning against the rails. Take a moment to observe the houses, the scenery and the decorations of the bridge while passing through.
