Tennyo Bridge

Tennyo Bridge


Tennyo Bridge provides access across the northern part of Enkanchi Pond to <I>Nakanojima</I>, 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.
