Ishibashi Park, Kagoshima

#7 of 17 in Museums in Kagoshima
Ishibashi Park is a park in Hama-machi, Kagoshima, Japan. At the end of the Edo period (late 19th century), local lord Shimazu Shigehide had five bridges, collectively called the Gosekkyō ("five stone bridges"), built across the Kōtsuki River. Two of them collapsed in floods in 1993. The remaining three were moved to a new location and restored. Ishibashi Park consists of these three bridges and a museum.HistoryOn August 6, 1993, torrential rain in Kagoshima Prefecture led to flooding that caused two of the five bridges, Takeno-bashi Bridge and Shinkan-bashi Bridge, to collapse. The other three bridges, Tamae-bashi Bridge, Nishida-bashi Bridge, and Kōrai-bashi Bridge, also suffered enormous damage.After the flooding, the three bridges that withstood it were moved to a new location where they could be repaired, restored and better protected. In 2000, this place was opened as Ishibashi Park.OutlineThe park is at the mouth of the Inari River, next to national highway Route 10, and was originally a location for the Gion-no-su gun battery used during the Anglo-Satsuma War in 1863.Nishida-bashi Bridge is the nearest bridge to the memorial hall. A large amount of money was spent on it, because the daimyo (territorial lords) used it when travelling on sankin kōtai, which obligated lords to live for a year alternately in Edo (Tokyo) and in their own feudal domains, to show their loyalty to the shogunate. Kōrai-bashi Bridge connected Kajiya-chō and Kōrai-chō, where there lived many samurai who would later overthrow the Tokugawa shogunate. Of the three bridges, Tamae-bashi Bridge, which was originally furthest upstream but now closest to the sea, retains most of the original features of the stone bridges.

  • This scene is not a must-visit place in deer city, but for the opening of the visitors, the location is quite convenient, especially for the tourists who spend flowers, it is also a good thing, not to go to the time spent, so can only look at the scene, Before looking for data to say that it is possible to shoot the whole volcano under the bottom of the stone, but I went to the day is rain and did not see this scene, but is the side of the stone read, free ticket is a good place to shelter from the rain, there are some models of stone construction and show the process, said that are in Japanese so to the visitors, Seems to understand non-understand. There are also two shadows, you can see the whole move before and after, so to say to go to the rest is also a very good. As for the exterior of the public park is also a very good place to walk, the part of the children's home is not too big, basic such as the dragonfly, climbing frame, slide, there is no, but a good place is a place. If the weather is good, the pair can be pushed, not only can be free of stopping, but also can have a small exhibition to see, but also can see the volcano with stone, this is a beautiful.

  • Five stone bridges were built on the Edo era, and now only three are left, which have been restored and moved here. There is a small exhibition room in the park, which recreates the bridge construction through pictures and models. But it's a popular spot, located midway from downtown to Fairy Rock Park, but there doesn't seem to be public transport, but there are plenty of restaurants not far away.
