Ishihiya Bashi (Ishiba-shi) Bridge
The Ishihiya Bashi Bridge is located downstream on the Noha River which flows outheast of the Tomigusuku Gusuku castle. Up until the war, it was a beautiful, arched stone bridge. It is not clear when the bridge was built, but as legend has it, the bridge was constructed as a part of plot to attack the castle of Tomigusuku Gusuku by sending in female spies into the castle.
Initially, the bridge was constructed of wood, but after its destruction in 1694 due to a flood, it was rebuilt by stone in 1697.
During the Ryukyu Kingdom era, it was used as a path to gather the King’s troops at the southern shore of Naha Port by way of Madanbashi Bridge from the Shurijo Castle, and hus the bridge was a strategically important route in terms of military affairs and ransportation. Further, in the area around the bridge were docks and sugar factories and was once a hub for shipping supplies.
The footing on the bridge was unique, with sharp-angled, triangular shape, known as Shiokiri (Suchiri), which was designed with consideration to the ebb and flow at the mouth of the Noha River, and the rapid flow of the water.
However, the Ishihiya Bashi Bridge was destroyed in the Battle of Okinawa, and only the bridge footings remained up until the 1970s, and the footings, too, were removed as the bridge was reconstructed in 1978.
