This bridge has been Iwakuni's iconic symbol since its construction in 1673. The 200m bridge has five wooden arches, without the use of any nails, that rest on massive stone pillars to cross over the Nishiki River. This is considered one of three most beautiful bridges in Japan, along with Nihonbashi Bridge in Tokyo and Meganebasho ('spectacles bridge') in Nagasaki.
The bridge, modeled on the 6-arch bridge in Hangzhou, China, was commissioned by a feudal lord to withstand floods and had lasted until 1950 when a violent typhoon hit this area. The current bridge is a precise reconstruction of the original completed in 1953. The bridge festival is held on the fourth Sunday of April to celebrate a splendid scenery of 3,000 cherry trees in full bloom.
This bridge is one of the tree beautiful bridges in Japan.
Its unique figure and beautiful scenery of the Kikko park attract lots of travelers all year round.

This shrine, located on an island of the Seto Inland Sea, is worldly famous for its 'floating' view on the sea. The 10-minute ferry from Miyajima-guchi Station takes you to the island, and you will be greeted by numerous roaming deer. The long approach is studded with food stalls with inviting local treats such as fried fishcake (satsuma-age), roasted oyster and maple-shaped sweet bun (momiji-manju).
As you walk through a main hall and a noh theater stage, you will come to the spot where you can get a great view of 16m-high vermilion gate standing in the sea. You must, however, check out the tide of the day in advance. At high tide, it is time to appreciate the floating view of the shrine or enjoy a cruise going through the gate. At low tide, you can probably walk towards the gate and even touch it.
If you have enough time, stroll 10 minutes to the ropeway that will take you to the upper part of Mount Misen (535m) offering a sweeping view of the sea. Another highlight is a night cruise to see an enchanting illumination of the shrine.
Miyajima is one of the World Heritage Sites in Japan and the popular tourists destination. Located off the coast of Hiroshima, the serene beauty of the island is an essential spot.
You will walk around the island including Great Red Torii Gate, Itsukushima Shrine, Daishoin Temple, and so on.
