The second of three long and high concrete arch bridges within the Takachiho Gorge region of Japan, Aoba is a smaller version of nearby Tensho bridge.

Takachiho Gorge has more high bridges than any other single location in Japan. These include the highest railway bridge in Japan over the Takachiho gorge as well as the Shintotakachiho and Tensho concrete arches, the Unkai, Ryuten and Seiun steel arches and the Kamiiwato concrete beam bridge. All 8 bridges are more than 328 feet (100 mtrs) in height. If you have just one day to visit high bridges in Japan, Takachiho gorge is the place to be!
