Kintai Bridge has been designated as a National Scenic Location of Japan, and it is also one of Japan’s Three Famous Bridges.
It is a beautiful and large 5-story arch bridge, with a total length of 193.3 meters and a width of 5 meters.
It was built in 1673, taking inspiration from Kintai Bridge in West Lake, Hangzhou, China.
Later, in 1950, the bridge was washed away in a flood, and it was then rebuilt in 1953.
In 2004 Japan’s Kintai Bridge was named a sister bridge to Hangzhou’s Kintai Bridge, and a stone monument commemorating the bridges’ relationship is being built.
