Known as a source of inspiration for artists and lovers alike, Harimaya Bridge features in numerous hit songs and movies. This 20 m (65 ft) red arched bridge stands side by side with the surrounding department stores in the heart of the city. Torn down and rebuilt many times throughout history, the tiny bridge is the setting of an old local folk song, in which a Buddhist priest buys a hairpin for his sweetheart. Look for the monument to this song at the foot of the bridge, which draws scores of tourists.

  • The cute red drum bridge of the "Arimaya Bridge", which has become a tourist attraction, will shine on Insta. It is recommended to take a commemorative photo that came to Kochi.

  • The distance is short, but when I visit the bridge with the atmosphere to make up for it, I want to wait for the time of the light rain and walk gracefully with the umbrella.

  • Pretty famous, and this is one of the places where many Japanese want to visit one. However, what they actually see is just a small bridge. Take a picture, and that it. Nothing more. So don't be so exited to visit Harimaya bashi. It is JUST a small red bridge. That's all. Don't waste your time in Kochi. There are more to see, taste, and enjoy!
  • Not a lot to do or see here, you’ll be done in just a few minutes unless you take a lot of photos. But it’s surrounded by shopping streets so great to stop by if you are sightseeing in Kochi City!
