The Iya-no-Kazura-bashi in Miyoshi’s Nishi Iya Sanson weighs approximately 5 tonnes and is made of woven vine in the style of a traditional suspension bridge. This place is now, as in the past, quite isolated. According to legend, the bridge was created during the Genpei Battles by the defeated soldiers of the Heike clan as they fled. The bridge was constructed with natural vegetation so that it could easily be cut down if needed.

A suspension bridge made of woven vines

‣ The bridge is 45 meters long, 2 meters wide, and suspended from trees on both sides of the valley. There are not many bridges like this in Japan, so this site is especially popular, with 300,000 people visiting each year.

‣ The bridge is hung at a height of 14 meters from the water surface. Crossing the bridge is exciting, as it sways back and forth with each step of the people crossing.
