This is the old bridge crossing over the Shinano river, which is the longest river in Japan. You must feel comfortable to take a walk on the bridge. The bridge has six elegant arches.

Nice walk across the bridge with an interesting view, but the bridge itself is nothing special. When you walk the city, you cross in anyway.

I'm not sure what is so exciting about this bridge. There are far better examples of concrete construction in many other cities. However, it does give easy access to Furu-machi (Old Town).

Apparently one of the city's top attractions. It's worth a look and a walk across if you're in Niigata. There's a plaque on the city-centre side with some quite interesting information, notably that the river itself used to be 3 times wider till it was...More

I look down on this 4-lane bridge from my hotel in Niigata and it appears to be a basic river crossing. When I went for a closer inspection, I saw no special ornamentation or anything that would make this approximately 1,007-foot-long, 72-foot-wide span a must-see...More
