This wooden bridge, which extends over the Kizugawa River, is one of the longest in Japan at 356.6m. Its name comes from the fact that its girders are designed to flow in order to reduce resistance during flooding. It has been used frequently as a filming location in historical films.
It is also included in the "A Walk through the 800-year History of Japanese Tea," certified by the Agency for Cultural Affairs.
