Spectacles Bridge (Megane-bashi)

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.
