Bridges in this large, semi-circlar shape are also known as ""taiko"" bridges. In fact, a view of the ""Misty Spring Moon at Ango Bridge"" is listed amongst the ""eight picturesque views of Yawata"" (lists of “eight views” have historically been a common style of compiling beautiful and scenic locations in East Asia).
The bridge spans across the Hojo River, both banks of which feature walking paths, and these, along with the grounds of Iwashimizu Hachimangu Shrine on the right bank, are popular places for locals to relax.
Ango Bridge is also the location of the Hojo Ritual, held in the morning as a part of the Iwashimizu Festival.
