Tenmon Bridge (Bridge No. 1)天門橋(1号橋)
"A bridge located a 30-minute drive from the Matsubase Interchange. Situated along National Route 266, the bridge is the first picturesque viewpoint along the Amakusa Pearl Line, a scenic driving route selection for inclusion in a list of Japan's 100 best roads. Connecting Kyushu and the islands of Amakusa, the bridge serves as the gateway to Amakusa. Its 300 meter span from pier to pier is the longest of the five Amakusa bridges, while its total length is 502 meters. Since it was opened in 1966, the bridge has contributed greatly to the development of many local industries and is also known as the ""bridge of dreams."" The view of the sun rising beyond the bridge, visible and photographable from the Shintenmon Bridge from fall through winter, is particularly stunning."

Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
