The 375-meter-long Ryujin Suspension Bridge spans the Ryujin Dam, which impounded the Ryujin River that flows through Ryujin Gorge, one of Ibaraki's most scenic spots.
In mid-August, the Ryujin Gorge Lantern Festival is held in the Ryujin Gorge area around the Ryujin Suspension Bridge.
About 500 lanterns and 100 bamboo lanterns (candles in bamboo tubes) set up around the Ryujin Suspension Bridge are lit, creating a fantastic and romantic atmosphere that is a complete change from the daytime bustle.
Wind chimes from all over the country are lined up on both sides of the bridge, and the cool sounds of the wind chimes echo through the summer night sky.
A variety of other events will also be held during the festival, and the Ryujin Suspension Bridge is free of charge after 5 pm. Also the souvenir shop and the restaurant will be open until 9:00 p.m.

Visited here and really enjoyed the area. Careful with your valuables because a group of young bikers stole parts off my bike when I visited there. I jumped off the 50meter bridge at their other location and found it amazedly thrilling. Definitely a bucket list tic off for sure.
