There is a carillon called “Mori no Kane” is on the opposite bank, and it is popular among couples as it needs two people to press a button simultaneously.

Review of Ryujin Big Suspension Bridge

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/01/12 Were on a bridge to nowhere.
Its a 320 yen excuse to be in natural surroundings. The bridgeway is connected to various nature walks but most of those were closed for maintenance in January 2020 . Theres the bungee of course.

I think the bridge has no particular purpose except for viewing the gorge below during autumn and occasional bungee jumping? (In Japan, this might be an example of wasteful spending). Still, it...

The bridge itself is actually kinda cool. It’s spunky towers are well designed and whimsical, like something out of a fantastical anime.

Sadly, they’ve put up huge, amateurish paintings on either...

          Just a stone’s throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuen - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens - in spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
