Kintaikyo, an historical wooden bridge, was built in 1673 by the feudal lord Kikkawa Hiroyoshige and is the Iwakuni clan's chief accomplishment. It has been restored several times, most recently in 2003-04, but still remains an impressive sight.
Kintaikyo is regarded as one of the three most beautiful bridges in Japan. It is also famous for beautiful cherry trees in spring.
