should have a boat trip if the weather is fine

It was a heavy rain on that day so we didn't have a chance to have a boat trip which I really recommend to the tourist. We drove a long way there but It was worth doing it.

You will be able to see a couple of bridges cited as attractions in TripAdvisor. We stopped at the Shimanto Tourist Information Centre at about 2 pm for the rental bike. We took a city bike... More

The bridges in this area are interesting because they have no side railings. There are quite a few of them and most have something distinct about each particular bridge. The only drawback to seeing them is that often the road becomes very narrow and difficult when meeting a car coming the other direction.
