A nice red bridge that leads into the bamboo forest. The scenic view around Shuzenji town is nice to view from this romantic bridge. There is a tea house near the bridge that offers to sit and have a drink outside overlooking the bridge.

Painted in red, Katsura Bridge makes a beautiful contrast to green leaves. It is a nice stop to take a picture.
