Standing at the entrance into a World Heritage-listed complex of temples, Shinkyo Bridge is an ornate vermilion-lacquered bridge allowing visitors to cross the Daiya River. The current structure dates back to 1636, although a bridge probably crossed this river in the same spot much before that date. Pay a small fee to cross the bridge, appreciate its architecture, and snap a few memorable shots.

Shinkyo Bridge Reviews
This pretty landmark stands above a clear river. You need to pay to enter and walk the bridge. We chose to just take a picture from afar. more »
Η γέφυρα Shinkyo είναι σήμα κατατεθέν στην Nikko είναι όμορφη και από κάτω περνάει το ποτάμι σε μια οργιώδη βλάστηση καλό είναι αν πάτε ως την Nikko την γέφυρα να την κάνετε στην επιστροφή σας από τον... more »The Shinkyo Bridge is a landmark in Nikko it is beautiful and underneath it passes the river to a lush vegetation good is if you go as the Nikko the bridge to do it on your return from Toshogu temple because it is in downhill.
Best view when i came on autumn season. No need to pay to enjoy its beauty.. u can see it even from inside bus. I took walk in one freezing morning to here.. and its amazing when at 7 am no one's there..
A very cool little place. The bridge is situated next to a more modern bridge, but despite this has very good views of the river and the surrounding hills and mountains. Also has some shrine-related merchandise at a small shop next to it, but this stuff is less tacky, most of the things there are worth the money. Has a very zen-like feel to it. A definite visit if your in Nikko.
