Megane-bashi bridge



The oldest stone arch bridge in Japan. Meganebashi or Spectacles Bridge, over the Nakashima

River was built in Nagasaki in 1634 by the Chinese monk Mokusunyoujo who is a second

generation of Chinese monks living at Kofukuji Temple. It is said to be the oldest stone arch

bridge in Japan and has been designated as an Important Cultural Property.


Megane Bridge is also part of the first group of bridges built over Nakashima River. Megane Bridge is

made of stone and is a double arch bridge. It received the nickname “Spectacles Bridge” because its

two arches and their reflection in the water create the image of a pair of spectacles.
