Kintaikyo Bridge, Iwakuni

Traverse the five arches of Kintaikyo Bridge, a historic wooden bridge that crosses the Nishiki River. The scenic bridge has been restored several times since its construction in 1673, but still retains its continuous arch shape and exhibits intricate wooden craftsmanship and details. Walk across the pedestrian-only bridge and stop along the way to enjoy the view of the river, overlooked by the towering Mount Yokoyama and Iwakuni castle perched on its top. Our Iwakuni trip planning app makes visiting Kintaikyo Bridge and other Iwakuni attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • It is an excellent place to view the bridge and just walk and spend time. A very nice ice cream shop is on the other side of the bridge.  more »
  • 2019/4/12 (Fri) Is it a little late at the time of cherry blossoms? I thought, i came to see the collaboration of Kintaibashi and cherry blossoms on a side road because I came close with great pains. Because there were a lot of double cherry blossoms, the cherry blossoms were still there. The contest between Kintaibashi and cherry blossoms that was lit up was spectacular.
