Boasting superb views and rising 54 meters above the emerald green Totsukawa River, the Tanize Suspension Bridge was built in 1954 for residents and is still used today.


Though safety is guaranteed, the swaying motion can be either quite unsettling or fun, depending on your perspective. Nestled deep in the mountains, this village was home to some of the fiercest samurai, and that tough mountain spirit lives on. Trails that are part of a UNESCO world heritage site, sacred sites, and pilgrimage routes in the Kii Mountain Range run through the village, which feels almost unchanged since ancient times.



How to get there

From Shin-Osaka Station: Take the Osaka East Line to Kyuhoji Station (about 35 minutes), then walk to Oji Station and take the Wakayama Line to Gojo (about 55 minutes). Take the bus bound for JR Shin Omiya Station and get off at Uenochi Teiryujyo. The bridge is 33 minutes on foot from the stop.
