Kintaikyou Bridge

Kintaikyo Bridge, located in Iwakuni-city, Yamaguchi Prefecture, is a series of five-arched
wooden bridge on four stone piers that extends across the lower Nishiki River.

This unique bridge, which is 193.3 meters long and five meters wide, has an 
elaborate wooden framework made of winding wires and clamps, and is counted 
as one of the three most famous bridge in Japan.
It has gone through three reconstructions since it was originally built in 1673 
by third load of
Iwakuni domain, Kikkawa Hiroyoshi.
