Harimaya Bridgeはりまや橋

Other Sightseeing Spot

The Harimaya Bridge is a red bridge located in Harimaya-cho that has come to symbolize Kochi City. It is famous as the setting for the love story between Junshin and Oma which is celebrated in the traditional folk song “Yosakoi-bushi.” The Bridge was built across the Hori River during the Edo period as a private bridge to facilitate access between two shops, Harimaya and Hitsuya, from which it takes its name. Today, the area around the Bridge has been developed as Harimaya Park, and there are monuments in commemoration of Junshin and Oma.

Kochi Main Areas

around-area-map

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.
