Its most famous landmark is the Togetsu-Kyo bridge, located at its centre. It looks beautiful against the background of trees and forests, with a cherry blossom viewing park located next to it. The bridge is surrounded by many shops and restaurants and important tourist attractions like the Tenryuji Temple and the famous bamboo groves.
