  The sacred bridge, Nikko
by mim95

The Sacred Bridge undergone major renovation and had just been reopened when I went there. It is considered as one of the finest bridge in Japan.

The old red bridge is very attractive, which was built across the crystal clear running river, and is surrounded by thick forests.

There is a hefty admission fee of 500 yen if you want to walk across it or to have a closer examination of its fine details. The old bridge is only about 100m from the current road bridge, so you can save money.

Check the website below for more details about the bridge.

Directions: Shinkyo is the gateway to all the famous shrines of Nikko. Take the Tobu bus from Nikko train station or walk on the main street towards the shrine area.
