Toyo Bridge (Ja Ja Bridge)

更新日:2021年6月18日

A bridge that spans the Ono River in front of Inoh Tadataka’s Former Residence. It was originally a large canal built in the early Edo period (1603-1868) that carried water from the eastern part of the Ono River to the rice paddies at the other end of the river. It has been used for almost 300 years, and even after it became a concrete bridge before WWII, water continued to flow through a large water pipe under the bridge. When the water falls into the Ono River, it makes the sound ja ja, giving the bridge its nickname “Ja Ja Bridge.”

The bridge we see today was built for tourism. Water falls from it every 30 minutes from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The sound of water falling from this bridge has been selected as one of the 100 Soundscapes of Japan.
