About this sight

Stretching 45 meters across Iya River, this suspension bridge is made of vine roots. According to legend, the bridge was created by members of the Heike clan seeking refuge in the area after their defeat in the Genpei War (1180-1185). Of the once 13 bridges, only three are still remaining today. Kazurabashi Bridge is the largest and most popular. For safety reasons, it is reconstructed every 3 years.
