Where and Tips


This is a historical wooden arch bridge, in the city of Iwakuni, in Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan. The length is 175m and the width is 5m. The bridge was built in 1673, spanning the Nishiki River in a series of five wooden arches.
In 1953, the bridge was reconstructed similarly to the original and all five bridge girders were restored between 2001 and 2004.

I arrived at Iwakuni railway station in early evening and visit this place by bus. I really enjoyed illuminated views.
