Create an itinerary including Shinkyo Bridge
Standing at the entrance into a World Heritage-listed complex of temples, Shinkyo Bridge is an ornate vermilion-lacquered bridge allowing visitors to cross the Daiya River. The current structure dates back to 1636, although a bridge probably crossed this river in the same spot much before that date. Pay a small fee to cross the bridge, appreciate its architecture, and snap a few memorable shots.
