Sadachinka Bridge佐田沈下橋


The Sadachinka Bridge, a typical “chinka”, or sinking bridge, able to sustain flooding on the lower parts of the Shimanto River, is the longest of the more than 40 so called sinking bridges on the Shimanto River boasting a length of 291.6 meters and a width of 4.2 meters. In order to prevent being washed away during high floods, these submersible bridges were built without railings. Visitors can enjoy the pleasant feeling of the cool breeze as they cross the bridge on foot with many tourists coming to visit throughout the year.

          Kochi Main Areas


          The largest of Shikoku's prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island's most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you're a pilgrim or not, Kochi's 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
