Magane-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.
