Iya Vine Bridge Crossing Ticket (Iya, Tokushima) 【Day-of Reservation Available】

Same-day reservations available! Iya Vine Bridge Crossing Ticket (Iya, Tokushima)

The Iya Vine Bridge in the mountains of Nishi-Iya Valley, Miyoshi City, is known as one of the three most mysterious bridges in Japan. The bridge is made of kiwi vines, weighing approximately 5 tonnes, and the vines are replaced every three years. Today, the area around the bridge is maintained to accomodate large buses and cars, but in the past, it was a “hidden valley” that could only be reached by traversing through the harsh mountains and gorges. Crossing the vine bridge is a thrilling experience with each swaying step! 

The area is tucked deep into nature, and blessed by the clear, pure waters of the Iya River and Biwa Waterfall. The falls are 45m long, 2m wide, and 14m above the water. (Designated by the national government as an important tangible folk cultural property)
