“Gorgeous view and thrilling experience!”

Yume no Tsuribashi Suspension Bridge
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 June 2017

It takes almost 2 hours to drive from Shizuoka station to reach sumatakyo onsen and followed by 2km walk to the bridge. It was a bit tiring but all worth it because of the scenery and experience.

There was a long queue in the late afternoon. But once you reach the venue and on the bridge the experience was all worth it.

This is a bridge popular for couples. Which also explains why there were a lot of couples in the queue. There is a believe that dreams will come through for couples that make wishes in the middle of the suspension bridge....

The bridge is definitely a must do if your in the area. It was scary being that high up, you can see all the way down and the bridge does sway as its suspended. Its a great opportunity and is fun once completed!!!

I planned a day trip to visit Yume No Tsuribashi Suspension Bridge. We started the day off early and made our way to Kanaya station. At Kanaya station you can purchase a round trip ticket (including bus fare) to Senzu station for 3900 yen. We arrived at Senzu station around 11am and took a 40 min bus ride up to the Sumatakyo Onsen area (the last stop). We were able to hike to the bridge and back in 1.5 hours. We went in Nov and although the water level is lower, you do get gorgeous autumn leaves surrounding the mountains!

This bridge is getting famous in Japan because it has been appeared on TV shows recently and we can get there from Tokyo within 3 hours by car. Because of this, if you are considering to visit there, you should visit early morning on weekday in order to avoid crowd.

Take the SL train of Oigawa railway from Shin-Kanaya to Senzu for 80 minutes.
Get bus from Senzu to Sumatakyo Onsen for 40 minutes.
You must check the timetable for both train and bus for good connection.
The route ticket, you can take both train and bus, is available at Kanaya terminal. It is easy to use and a bit cheaper.
You may pre-reserve seats of SL train through the website of Oigawa Railway. English & Chinese pages are available.

* Less people makes no wait
* To do this, stay in Sumatakyo Onsen area.
Visit there on week days
* A local person said that you might wait for two hours to pass the bridge on some holidays.
One-way rule on the bridge
* Since the bridge is very narrow, you may not possible to pass by one another.
* You cannot return, therefore, you have to keep going to other side of river.
320 stairs on the other side of river
* These stairs are little a bit tough.
It takes 90 minutes for the round trip.

Good shooting point for the bridge is located on the way of the round trip route.
