Gojo Ohashi Bridge
Kyoto is famous for giving birth to numerous stories and legends that paint a picture of its rich history. Gojo-Ohashi Bridge is just one of numerous historical places only a few minutes walk away from Sumitsugu machiya house.
This famous bridge is where the legendary battle of Benkei (a Japanese warrior monk) & a young Yoshitsune (a future military commander) took place.
