Futamata Bridge ♡ Course

  • 5km
  • 110min

A Great Encounter! See Sites of the Yuen Railroad, Too

Located at the juncture of the Tsurugawa and Shakain Rivers, the Futamata Bridge has for centuries been a busy place for transport. The bridge is now known as a lucky spot for love, as the bridge forms a heart with its shadow during specific seasons. This course takes you along a number of old pathways, including a few other stone bridges and the former Yuen Railroad. A nice relaxing dip in an onsen is the perfect way to end your walk.
