The Shimanto River is known as “Japan’s last remaining limpid stream.” The many submersible chinkabashi that can be found along the river are bridges without balustrades made so that they sink and are not swept away when the river floods, and give the Shimanto River its poetic charm. It is still a path for residents' lives to this day, where you can ride along it with a bike and enjoy cycling. You can also enjoying various activities along the Shimanto River such as canoeing and yakatabune boat rides.
