First built in 1673, the Kintaikyo Bridge has been Iwakuni’s most adored landmark for centuries. Its 5 arches, supported by ancient stone pillars, span the Nishiki River and are made completely of wood, all without the use of any nails. In 2004, the bridge underwent an extensive renovation, and it is now open to pedestrian traffic. For a small fee, you can trek across this venerable masterpiece.
