this little red bridge is right in the centre of town and it features in a folk song of a love story about a monk from the Chikurin-ji temple who falls in love with a tinker's daughter

I thought it was a fun little sight, and it is easy to access. It is located on the arcade, so you don't need to make effort to find. Probably you need only a few minutes here, but photo is nice opportunity.

To appreciate this bridge one must read up a bit on the love story that supposedly took place in this spot. It is a classic wooden Japanese bridge that is worth including in your photos of Kochi. One bonus is the mechanical wall clock right...More

I spent less than 1 minute looking at the bridge. It is beside a shopping Arcade. On the way there for lunch. Not worth going just to visit it.

Small imitation bridge. It may not be the destination, but located at convenient neighborhood. Good place to take trip photos.

The bridge is actually a reconstruction, not the original. Thus it doesn't really "bridge" anything however, the have created a short canal to give it a bridge like appearance. It makes for a good foto opportunity though

Of all the red bridges I've seen in Japan this may be the least interesting ever. Still pretty but I wouldn't walk a city block to see it, just notice it in passing. Historically, it seems to be of some importance though we were trying...More

It is just a red bridge. Nothing more except that there is a story behind it. Located near big junction of 1,2 slot (pachinko..i think) and near Tosaden harimayabashi station. Direction: If you exited kochi station, it is on your right, before that pachinko junction...More
