One of Japan's three unusual bridges. Snap a shot of the arches together with the castle nearby.
The bridge is constructed using interlocking wooden parts and metal bands, all without using a single nail.
The Iwakuni Domain Cannon Unit performs here annually on New Years Day, and on the first Saturday in August, the bridge becomes crowded with people for the Kintai Bridge Fireworks Festival.
The bridge is also extremely popular as a photo for its cherry blossoms and autumn foliage.
