This is one of the 3 remaining vine bridges, the longest and most challenging, and the most visited. Entrance fee is 550 yen/adult. We were quite scare when we saw that there were gaps throughout the bridge while we were crossing. However, we mindfully crossed the bridge and at the end we took photos of us achieving the feat.

Though quite impressive, it is not nearly as nice as the Oku-Iya Niju vine bridges. We had thought this would be better, but its pretty touristy. If you have the option to choose, go out to the other ones which are truly stunning and give this bridge a pass. (but the other bridges are pretty far out and the road to there is kinda scary.)

Bus takes nearly an hour. The taxi will charge astronomical amount for 20 minutes journey. This is the sore point. The views are as you would get in any area with mountain gorge. Fix the transportation so that many tourists can come and marvel this bridge.

The Iya Kazura Bridge is not the easiest place to get to from Mainland Japan, but I made a fun weekend out of it. The area is beautiful and the water is crystal clear. By the bridge there are parking lots, unfortunately you have to pay to park on top of the fee to cross the bridge. I was here on a Saturday afternoon and it was crowded but still had an amazing time. traffic on the bridge is one way, and it is pretty scary walking across the bridge, don't worry it's safe. There are gaps between the planks and the bridge does sway. Don't drop anything as it will fall in the river below. The history of these bridges are very interesting. I really want to come back to this area in the summer time, I bet it is beautiful.

It is definitely worth a visit if you are in the Iya Valley area. You can take a bus from the Oboke station (not so frequent though) or via taxi, if you are not driving. It only takes a few minutes to cross the bridge, but it is thrilling as the gaps between the bridge are wide. It tends to shake when others are crossing it so do be careful. It is also near the Biwa waterfall, and there's an area where you can hike down to the stream.

The most accessible and popular vine bridge as you can access it by JR and also car. Just 5 mins from the parking lot and you will see a breathtaking view. The valley is beautiful and the bridge is one of a kind, one of Japan's 3 most peculiar bridges. Made of mountain vines at the Iya Valley it a really special experience to walk on it and enjoy the scenic views.

I always wonder why people are walking so slowly on the bridge and catch the rail so carefully, because it does not look so dangerous. But you will feel differently when you are walking on it, try it yourself.
看來一點也不危險的祖谷藤蔓橋,但當真正踏上橋面卻是另一回事,難怪見到遊人都用力握緊藤蔓,一步一步慢慢過橋。要拍攝這橋的風景,最理想就是在橋下的小河邊,可以把後面的山景也入鏡。

To reach here from Kochi, you need to take a lot of efforts, from Kochi train station to Oboke Station, then local bus to lya valley (please make sure you have the time table ready on your hands to make sure you do not miss the bus, that is if you are not driving). I was lucky when I was visiting this Kazura Bashi, as the weather was perfect, and it was mid autumn, with leaves changing color, and it was not the peak season for tourists, hence it was perfect timing to visit this place. And there is a shopping malls, if you would like to buy some souveniers, and there is a bus stop here to take you back to Oboke Station.

Kazurabashi is the Representative tourist spot of Tokushima.
You must cross the board tied up with vine, and intervals between the boards so that a foot seems to fall. When I jumped up and down on the bridge, the bridge shook and other tourists gave scream.
And this area’s local specialty is Soba(Japanese fagopyrum vulgare noodles). I ate Soba with Sudachi(sharp citrus fruit), It was very delicious!

「かずら」とは、つる草のことだそうです。日本三奇橋の一つに指定されています。徳島県の代表的な観光地なので、とても沢山の人が来ていました。
かずらで結ばれた板を渡って行くのですが、隙間が足が十分に落ちるくらいなので、臆病な方は怖いでしょう。私は橋の上で飛び跳ねましたが、周囲の方が悲鳴を挙げて楽しんでいました。
そして、ここの名物は祖谷そばです。近くのお店ですだちそばを食べましたがとても美味でした。

The bridge itself is interesting but over crowded and lacks serenity. The valley behind it however offers the most scenic views I have seen anywhere on earth. The water is translucent and the children can play for hours. It was a magnificent stop at the end of a long day.
