One of Japans three most scenic spots. It was designated as a World Cultural Heritage site. Iwakuni is home to the Kintai-kyo, a traditional five-arched bridge that spans the Nishiki-gawa. The bridge is 210m and is held together with only clamps and wires, not nails. Sadly, the bridge had to be re-built a third time in 1950 when it was destroyed by Typhoon Kijiya.
Ramen is one of the japanaese delicacies. AFURI’s yuzu-shio (Japanese citrus yuzu and salt) ramen is my all time favorite. This one in Harajuku branch & there is another one in Ebisu area. Do try out the different kind of soup base ramen when you are in Japan.
