Kintaikyo Bridge in Iwakuni Yamaguchi

Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to share our trip to Kintaikyo Bridge in Iwakuni City (Yamaguchi Prefecture) this time.


Kintaikyo Bridge in Iwakuni, Yamaguchi

Kintaikyo is an arch bridge in Iwakuni City, Yamaguchi Prefecture. It was built in 1673, all by wood, no iron nails. Sounds cool, doesn’t it? Do you see a castle up there? You could go up (by cable car) to this castle as well. Tickets are available at entrance of the bridge.

 

Access

Parking beside Kintaikyo costs 300 yen for a day.

Kikko Park & Momijidani Park

There are nice parks across the bridge. Let’s look around the area. It’s got houses that the lord of Iwakuni (named Kikko) lived in, and also old junior high and high school buildings at this Kikko Park.

Momijidani Park is right next to Kikko Park. Leaves turn beautiful red in Autumn. The picture below was taken in early November. It was a bit early.

OK. Let’s call it a day.

 

Lastly

How do you find it? Kintaikyo Bridge is actually close from the Miyajima ferry port (a 30-minute drive). It would be nice to stop by before or after visiting Miyajima (like we did). I would like to go back for Autumn leaves sometime. Other seasons would be also good though.

See you around!
