"Spectacles Bridge (Meganebashi)" Nagasaki Things to Do Tip by KevinMichael
Nagasaki Things to Do: 103 reviews and 271 photos
Built in 1634, this is the oldest stone arch bridge in Japan.
There's a nice canal running through this area of Nagasaki and actually there are quite a few bridges, but the one in particular to look for is Megane Bashi (I would actually translate it as Glasses Bridge but I guess Spectacles Bridge sounds better). You probably guessed it already as its namesake comes from its reflection off of the canal waters below it to give it the look of glasses.
My wife and I took a nice little stroll through the area and we picked up some Castella at one of the shops along side the canal.
