Arriving in Nikko, often the first stop as at the entrance to the shrines zone. Great view if you wait to get the bridge empty. Fun to throw a paper plane with your wish from the bridge into the river

You pay 300 yen to cross the bridge. It's a beautiful bridge with an amazing backdrop. The attraction wasn't busy at all which was nice!

Photo op is great. The rushing river below it and the iconic bridge allow for amazing pictures. We did not opt to walk on it for 600 yen as a couple and easily still can soak in the sites and get a few pictures. Perfect...More

Amazing clear blue waters, fish are visible swimming below. It’s often highly photographed on adverts for Japan. Highly recommended!

I really wished I could walk on it. An interesting and beautiful piece of history. I was lucky to witness a wedding party walking across it. It was a nice sight.

This is a beautiful bridge that is well maintained, and is ane easy walk from downtown Nikko. It has beautiful vistas for picture taking.

I think its not a must to pay 200 yen to cross it. Its smaller than it looks. Irmts a world heritage site The best views of the bridge are not paying

This is a beautiful bridge just opposite the entrance to the world heritage site. You can't cross the bridge but you get wonderful views of the bridge and the river below.

I thought who cares about a silly bridge, but it is really pretty set in the canyon on our way to the temple. It didn't appear to be open to go on but looking at it was just perfect.
