View, facing south, of the suspension bridge over Kamaguchi Gorge (a rugged section of Fuji River) between Naganuki in Shibakawa-cho and Setojima. The rapid flow of Fuji River makes bridges difficult to maintain. During the Edo Period, this was the only bridge over the river. Both banks are cliffs, and the width of the river is at its narrowest here. Several people are on the bridge, which is made of wisteria vines and planks. There is also a suspension bridge made only of vines.
