Tennyo Bridge – Best Place To Visit In Okinawa

Tennyo Bridge provides access across the northern part of Enkanchi Pond to Nakanojima, where Bezaitendo Temple sits. In order to house precious Buddhist scriptures received from Korea in 1467, a temple was built here in 1502. A stone-arch bridge with balustrades, the bridge is made of quarried Ryukyuan limestone. It is a style of bridge fairly typical of those found in southern areas of China. Prior to World War II, one could see many such arched bridges all around Okinawa.
