Koorogi Bridgeこおろぎ橋


A bridge made entirely of hinoki cypress crossing the Daishoji River in the Yamanaka Onsen hot spring resort area in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The Kakusen-kei Valley, which extends from the Koorogi Bridge to the Kurotani Bridge downstream, is famous for its picturesque scenery, and visitors can enjoy seasonal beauty here, from fall foliage to fresh spring verdure. The Kakusen-kei Valley is furnished with a walking path and is a popular area for visitors to walk. There are a variety of theories as to the origin of the bridge’s name; one theory says that the area was once called “koro-gi” (dangerous path) due to its perilous nature, while another theory states that the name comes from the crickets (“koorogi” in Japanese) which sing in abundance in autumn.

Ishikawa Main Areas


Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
