Bordering Wakayama and Mie prefectures on the southern tip of Nara, this place is simply idyllic. With lush, majestic mountains rising up on either bank, the emerald river sparkles during summer as the sun shines on its surface. After taking a dip in the river’s mellow currents, hike a short way up the mountain path to cross the Tanize bridge, which stretches over the river. At 297 metres, it’s the longest suspension bridge in Japan, so you’ll have one to tell your friends.
Take the JR Kisei line to Shingu station, then take a 90 minute bus ride to Totsugawa.
