A 94.7 meter long bridge crossing the Daishoji River in the Yamanaka Onsen hot spring resort area in Kaga, Ishikawa. The bridge is characterized by its elegant wine red color and unique, S-curve shape. The bridge was designed to resemble a cat’s cradle (“ayatori” in Japanese) with the banks on either side serving as hands. The bridge was designed with the help of Hiroshi Teshigahara, the third head of the Sogetsu school of flower arranging. The view of the Kakusen-kei Valley from the bridge is the definition of picturesque scenery and the bridge is a popular destination as part of walking courses in the area for tourists. After sunset, the bridge is lit up, creating a fairy tale-like sight.
