The bridge is really cool and beautiful, but it is definitely a little bit scary to cross. The slats you walk across are kind of far apart so you'll definitely want to watch your step.

It's one of the 3 extraordinary bridges in Japan. The spaces between the steps made it really exciting to walk across the bridge. It's one-way crossing only. Definitely worth visiting!

One of at least three similar bridges in the area, this well-reinforced traditional bridge is worth checking out. A relatively exciting way to cross the stream. Probably best not to look down!

The bridge has uneven steps so you need to watch your feet, which means looking down! Down is quite a drop. I saw people of all ages crossing but you need to hang onto children
