A robust steel arch bridge designated as a cultural asset of national importance.
It is said that the first bridge was built in 1698 to celebrate the 50th birthday of Tokugawa Tsunayoshi, the 5th Shogun. It was located about 150 meters upstream from the present bridge and was a large-scale wooden bridge of the time, commanding a fine view, and famous as a place to enjoy the cool of the evening in summer. The present bridge was built in 1926 to replace the old one as part of the restoration project from a major earthquake. The bridge has a massive and robust appearance.
