Four regal lions adorn this iconic and historical stone bridge which leads to Nakanoshima Park. Each pair of lions features one lion with a mouth open, and one with a mouth closed. First constructed in wood during the Edo era, the bridge was moved to its current location in 1912. Due to its location along the riverside, it is a popular spot for people to view summer fireworks and enjoy evening strolls.
