The “Dream” Great Suspension Bridge is a pedestrian suspension bridge opened in 2006. It boasts a length of 390 meters, a height of 173 meters, and a width of 1.5 meters.
It is the highest-up pedestrian bridge in Japan!

The bridge is engineered to support the weight of up to 1800 adults. The middle of the bridge offers a downwards view, letting you feel the thrill of looking 173 meters down to the floor of the valley! Please be aware that you cannot cross the bridge wearing high heels.

After seemingly stepping right over Kyusuikei Gorge and Naruko River Valley, both famous for their beautiful autumn views, before your eyes appear Shindo Falls, which was chosen as one of Japan’s 100 Waterfalls, Odaki Falls, and Medaki Falls. The gorgeous panorama of nature around you creates a magnificent view, and it feels almost as if you are walking through the sky.
