Shinkyo Bridge

The bridge has a long history

The bridge spanned over the Daiyagawa river is called 'Shinkyo', literally 'God Bridge'. It is sacred. At the entrance of Futarasan Jinja, a Shinto shrine which was registered as a World Heritage Site, the bridge was spanned.

There has been a bridge since a long time ago. It made its entry in the book written in about 600 years ago. Of course, the bridge in this photo was not so old. The present bridge was rebuilt in 1904 after the flood in 1902.
