Constructed in 1673, the Kintai Bridge (錦帯橋, Kintaikyo) is a historical wooden arch bridge in Iwakuni, Yamaguchi. The bridge is at the foot of Mt. Yokoyama (where Iwakuni Castle makes its home) and is interesting for its five graceful wooden arches. The three middle arches of the bridge span 35.1 meters, while the two end arches span 34.8 meters; four stone piers and two wooden piers support the arches. The bridge and castle make up Kikkou Park and remain a popular tourist destination, especially during the spring and autumn when visitors can see cherry blossoms or autumn leaves. In 1922, the bridge was declared a national treasure.
Located about 5 km from either Iwakuni Station or Shin-Iwakuni Station, the bridge is best reached by taxi or bus.
