Kami-no-Hashi Bridge, which crosses over the Nakatsu-gawa River, was constructed together with Morioka Castle by Nanbu Toshinao in 1609.
The 18 "Giboshi", or bridge ornaments, placed on the posts of the bridge were designated as national art treasures of Japan in 1945.
Eight of these bridge ornaments were made in 1690 and the others were made in 1610.
