Longest wooden footbridge in the world
Mar 2017 • Family
An easy walk but not if you don't like heights! 897 metres across fast running water (in the middle section), the bridge is 2.7 metres wide and only has knee-high railings! We were with some local friends and their beautifully behaved children walked, holding hands with the little ones, down the middle. As did I! There is a quiet area on the opposite bank with wonderful views back towards Shimada City. Open all year and at a cost of 100 yen for adults, it is well worth a visit.

Take a walk of the longest wooden bridge
Apr 2017 • Couples
This wooden bridge is the longest one. This bridge was used for historical movies and tv show.
Required 100yen for cost of maintenance.
There are free parking lot near bridge.
If there is strong wind or rain,not good for a walk.
It takes 30min for round trip. Also there is additional trail over the bridge.

Inspiring!

One of the many railway bridges in the area. Get the train timetable, arm yourself with a good camera, and shoot!! Nt just a place for railway enthusiasts (I never thought i was one, until I saw the bridges - and the great locomotives rolling into Senzu station ...)

we did it one way
Mar 2013 • Family
My sister is a real tea affectionada, so we took the train to Shimada, walked to and crossed the bridge and then decided to have a look at the tea plantations. It was very impressive. We did reach the tea museum (Ocha na sato), starting out on foot, but fortunately rescueded by a very kind lady. We did discover part of the old Hokaido road and walked further to Kanaya train station : back to the hotel after a very satisfying day

Thrilling
This bridge used to have been more thrilling because of some of the holes in the middle parts of the bridge. No more. It has become more stable and you can cross the bridge quite safely. I feel a bit disoriented when crossing the bridge but that is part of the thrill, and fun.
