This was a very long walk on a grand suspension bridge and we got to see waterfalls, mountains and valleys along the way. Lovely breathtaking views and felt fearless and a great sense of accomplishment once completed. We also saw Yamanami farm on the way...More

Offers a good view of the landscape and a scenic walk. The bridge it's is a 10 minute walk and connects to a viewing station that is 5minutes away (upslope). One can pay an additional ¥100 to access a better view. It is quite worth...More

This Kokonoe Yume Otsurihashi suspension footbridge is the longest and highest in the world. There is a magnificent view of the Naruko-gawa gorge and waterfalls from the middle span of the bridge. But be warn if you suffer from height or anxiety problems, especially when...More

If you like height, YES. If you are afraid of height, NO! Careful:: If you rely on GPS in car to drive to this place, the info on internet is misleading. It would often lead you to the city hall which is miles away! Entry...More

if you are up on the mountain anyway, it's a nice thing to say you've visited 'Japan's highest and longest suspension bridge'. There is also a lovely, mostly empty shrine just a short walk away from the hilly side of the bridge. Just go up...More
