Sarubashi (Monkey Bridge) spans Katsura River in Sarubashi-cho, Otsuki City, Yamanashi Prefecture. This bridge is considered one of the three most unusual bridges in Japan, together with Kiso-no-Kakehashi (Gifu Prefecture) and Kintai-kyo of Suo (Yamaguchi Prefecture). It was designated a National Place of Scenic Beauty in 1932. Sarubashi is designed in hijikiketa style, which is characterized by a lack of vertical supports. This is a view of the bridge from upstream. Many people are on the bridge. The date is unknown.
