Spectacular bridge. As you start your walk along one of the many trails in the Kamikochi national park, after deboarding at the bus terminal, the first thing that catches attention is this suspension bridge across the river. Spell binding.

This bridge is nice to take pictures but gets so overcrowded. Should visit it early in the morning before crowds get in.
