Charms of Minamiboso (30) Kajika Bridge

(30) かじか橋

This tiny bridge is the only suspension bridge in Minamiboso and lies amidst the quiet countryside of the Masuma area. Follow the narrow paved road along the little stream and you will find a small temple called Sawayama Fudo, with the charming bridge situated in front. Going down to the river, the presence of Shimenawa or sacred straw rope indicates that practitioners used to train here under the waterfall. In a month’s time, this will be a spot to see the autumn foliage.
