Megane Bridge, Nagasaki

3.3
Strolling along Nakashima River you’ll encounter an array of scenic stone bridges, one of which is Megane Bridge, named for the reflection of its arches in the water, resembling a pair of eyeglasses. One of the oldest stone arch bridges in Japan, it was built in 1634 by a monk and is deemed an Important Cultural Property. On a pleasant riverside walk, stop by and admire the famous bridge, or take a postcard-like photograph of the spectacled reflection if the water is still.

  • The title says it all. Teh area is nice for a stroll, and there is a decent cafe right by the bridge. The bridge itself...a bit of a non event for me.  more »
  • It's one of the three biggest disappointments in Japan, isn't it? I didn't expect it, so I was happy because I had lunch in Shin-Carpenter town and walked along the river and actually looked at the glasses bridge.
