The Ryujin Great Suspension Bridge is located in Ibaraki Prefecture’s Okukuji Prefectural Nature Park.
100 meters tall and 375 meters long, the Ryujin Great Suspension Bridge is the longest pedestrian-only bridge on Honshu. Hanging over the Ryujin Dam, from the bridge you can see a breathtaking view of the Ryujin Gorge and Ryujin River. The walls on both sides of the bridge depict paintings of mountains and the earth.

After crossing the bridge there is a carillon facility called “Mori no Kane,” (“Bells of the Tree Spirits”) which can ring with three different tones for either love, hope, or happiness. As two people must push a button at once for the bell of love, it is very popular with couples.
