Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kyushu / Kumamoto Prefecture / Kamimashiki-gun / Yamato-cho / Tsujun Bridge
Walk across Tsujun Bridge, the largest stone aqueduct in Japan, and feel the vibrations as it discharges large quantities of water from its 27.3 m high (90 ft) arch. An important irrigation structure built in 1854, this advanced piece of masonry makes it possible for water to flow into a higher area of the Shiroito Plateau for farming. Still functional after 160 years, the aqueduct makes a spectacular sound as it releases water. Check the aqueduct's release schedule to see it at its most impressive, when it discharges water, or take a guided tour. Try the croquets in nearby Yamato-cho, a specialty local lunch option. Plan your visit to Tsujun Bridge and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Yamato-cho day trip planner.
Tsujun Bridge reviews
We have visited the bridge on an afternoon in October. It is located near the village of Hamamachi. We were a little disappointed, because the bridge is closed for restoration until mid-2018. From... more »
Made a stop here on our way back from Kagura-matsuri in Yamato-cho. We didn't know when the water was released so there's nothing much to see, but the scenery here is beautiful. more »
Nice place, nice people around the village. Very summer you can see the big event with fire works at the bridge. You must drive.
Not in good season.
