If someone asked me, what is the most beautiful bridge (in the world)? I will reply ' Kintai ', because as far as I have seen, there are no bridges like this bridge, where elegance, subtlety, refinement, perseverance and human determination meet beautifully with nature. I am not over praising, Kintai Bridge is really like that.

After crossing Kintai Bridge, in the front of Kikko Park, there are at least three ice cream shops. One had about twenty flavors, another had about fifty. However, there is another one that attracted me to Iwakuni, with 100 flavors of ice cream. Yes, a hundred flavors! There are the usual chocolate, strawberry, vanilla flavors, along with novelty ones like soy sauce, ramen and natto, to name a few.
