Spectacles Bridge (Megane-bashi) (眼鏡橋)

Historical Monument

This stone bridge spanning the Nakashima River was constructed by Kofukuji Temple’s monk Mokusu Nyojo in 1634. This is Japan’s first arch-type stone bridge with a total length of 22 meters, a width of 3.6 meters, and a height above the river surface of 5.46 meters. The name comes from how the shape of the bridge’s two semicircle arches are reflected in the water surface and look like eyeglasses when viewed from far away. This is one of Japan’s three great bridges along with Nihombashi Bridge and Kintaikyo Bridge. It was designated as a National Important Cultural Property in 1960.

          Nagasaki Areas


          This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
