Kawazu Nanadaru spiral bridge
The Kawazu Nanadaru spiral bridge, located on Route 414 in Nashimoto, Kawazu Town, Kamo District, Shizuoka Prefecture, is officially called the Nanadaru bridge (lit. Seven waterfalls bridge), and is a double loop bridge with a total length of 1064 meters, a height difference of 45 meters, and a diameter of 80 meters. The bridge was built in 1981 as part of the restoration work after the 1978 earthquake near Izu Oshima, which severed the road on the mountainside. It features a 720-degree, two-turn loop, with counterclockwise ascent from Kawazu Station and clockwise descent from Izu City and the Amagi Tunnel. Many tourists come to see this compact yet dynamic loop bridge, and in spring it is one of the sites of the Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival.
