Japan map Karte Wakasa Bay Mount Aoba Wakasa Fuji

Demons's bridge is located (35° 6'49.95"N 135° 6'48.05"E) in Hyogo Prefecture. The bridge is shown on Hiroshige's woodblock print "Kanegasaka Pass in Tanba Province". The present Demon's bridge is not a natural arch, like shown on the Hiroshige's woodblock print. It is composed of three huge rocks. According a folk tale the demon's bridge was formed during a earthquake (15th century) as a huge stone collapsed and formed the structure.
