Tsujunkyo (Tsujun Bridge) in rural Kumamoto is known for its weekend water release display, an intriguing side effect of its use as an aqueduct. Occurring at noon on weekends and holidays from late spring to late fall, the display is one of the prefecture's most impressive sites and visitors are able to climb on top of the bridge to witness the release up close. The area is blessed with rice paddies and natural waterfalls. Spider lilies in the autumn and cherry blossoms in the spring make this a photogenic destination.
