Harimaya Bridge

The Harimaya Bridge appears in “Yosakoi-bushi,” a traditional folk song in Kochi Prefecture. The lyrics partly read: “I saw a monk buy a hairpin near the Harimaya Bridge in Kochi of Tosa…” It is a love story between Junshin, a priest of the Chikurin-ji temple on Godaisan (Mt. Godai) in the eastern part of Kochi City, and Ouma, daughter of a tinker, set in an area around the Harimaya Bridge.
The area surrounding the restored Harimaya Bridge has been developed into Harimayabashi Park, a water park where a monument to the love story stands and the Horikawa River, which had been buried in the 1960s, is replicated. The park is now a symbol of tourism in the area.
