Iya Kazurabashi

Iya Kazurabashi 祖谷かずら橋
A suspension bridges made of mountain vines (precisely kazurabashi)
45 meters across the Iya River
Rebuilt every three years
To be crossed in one direction only

Supposedly a place for the defeated Heike clan 平家
Every year a festival
To celebrate how they came to the valley
To hide from the victors in the Genpei War 源平合戦 (1180–1185)
