Kintai Bridge

One of the major tourist attracting of Iwakuni, where we are now living is the famous Kintai Bridge just outside of the city. The Kintai Bridge dates back to the 1600’s and spans the Nishiki river. Its five arches which you can walk across are a symbol of western HonshÅ«.

We chose a cloudy day as the temperatures have been hot and sticky and well into the 90’s this week! Luckily there are lots of drink and local snack sellers all around the base of the bridge area. Maricela loved saying hello in Japanese to the old ladies who were desperate to sell their goods to us!

We are really looking forward to coming back to this area to see the autumn colors, cherry blossoms and at night time to watch the cormorant fishermen, a tradition picked up from China.

This is also a great location for family portraits too, it looks like I will receive my business license this week so will start taking booking soon!
