Strolling along Nakashima River you’ll encounter an array of scenic stone bridges, one of which is Megane Bridge, named for the reflection of its arches in the water, resembling a pair of eyeglasses. One of the oldest stone arch bridges in Japan, it was built in 1634 by a monk and is deemed an Important Cultural Property. On a pleasant riverside walk, stop by and admire the famous bridge, or take a postcard-like photograph of the spectacled reflection if the water is still.

The view from the bridge is charming, specially with New year lanterns light.
This bridge is one of very famous, iconic places in Nagasaki city. It is called "Megane-Bashi", its means eyeglass bridge. This name is based on the shape of the bridge. There is an mobile shop selling ice cream at the bridge, it is worth eating!!! And there are many local sweets shops, so yen should visit, buy, and eat!
