Ohashi Roka and Wakayama Castle at Night

by Bob Kerstetter

Ohashi Roka is a covered bridge providing passage into the grounds of Wakayama Castle. Restored from 2003 to 2006, the bridge once protected the identifies of people entering the castle. Its angled architecture is rare in Japanese design, but served well the layout of the terrain. Today when passing through the bridge you must remove your shoes.
