Megane Bridge

Popularly known as “Megane Bridge,” it is the largest brick arch bridge in Japan with a diameter of 4, length of 91m, and height of 31m.

Completed in 1892, it had supported the Abt style Railway, but was closed in 1963 with the opening of the new railway line. In 1993, it was designated as a National Important Cultural Property, and in 2001, a promenade “Apt’s Way” was developed using the abandoned railway bed, and now visitors can walk on the bridge.

In 1999, the railroad museum exhibits the history of the Usui Pass railroad, steam locomotives and electric locomotives are lined up in the outdoor exhibition zone, and the railroad museum was established with the theme of “See, touch, and experience”.

In addition, a trolley train runs between “Bunka Mura” and “Toge no Yu” in parallel with the “Apt’s Way”, which is crowded with families and railroad fans.
