Iyanokazura Bridge

Iyanokazura Bridge

One of three rare and unusual great bridges of Japan, Iyanokazura is located in the remote village of Nishi Iyayama, belonging to the city of Miyoshi. It is made from five tons of hardy kiwi vines and is replaced every three years. The surrounding area has been developed with parking to accommodate large buses and private automobiles, making the spot more accessible. The location was once hidden and only reachable by navigating the cliffs. The thrilling crossing begins as the bridge begins to sway side to side with the first step you place on it. It is 45 meters in length, 2 meters wide and 14 meters above the water below. The Japanese government has designated the bridge a National and Prefectural significant folk cultural asset.
