Yukiwari Bridge Yukiwari Bridge


This arched iron bridge over the Abukuma River has a length of 81 meters, and a breathtaking height of approx. 50 meters above the valley. The area 4 km around the iron bridge is called "Yukiwari Valley" (Literally "Snow Valley"), with the Abukuma River fantastically cutting through the beautiful winter scenery. Not only is winter a sight for the eyes - the lush greens of spring and the colorful trees of fall are also worth a visit. A walkway follows the river below the bridge. The Yukiwari Bridge Observatory is situated on this walkway.
