Tsujunkyo Bridge, Yamato-cho

#1 of 16 in Things to do in Yamato-cho
Walk across Tsujunkyo 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 Tsujunkyo Bridge and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Yamato-cho day trip planner .

  • Unfortunately, it was under repair work, and scaffolding was installed. There is a roadside station in a place that is a little difficult to understand, but the view from here was the best.

  • It is a large large stone arch waterway bridge registered in the "Irrigation Facility Heritage". I think the idea and technology of building such a facility are wonderful. It becomes a picture even if it sees from a distance, and it can be felt that it is a waterway bridge when seeing it from a close. I can't go to the top of the bridge now, but I want to go there again when the construction is over.
