HistoryEdit

In 1953, a flood on the river destroyed all of the bridges over the river except Asanogawa-ohashi Bridge. Due to the continuous flood on the river over the years, a watercourse was constructed in 1974 to mitigate the flood. Nevertheless, another flood occurred in 2008.[3]

BridgesEdit

Bridges that cross the river from upstream to downstream are Shimotagamibashi Bridge, Asahibashi Bridge, Wakamatsubashi Bridge, Kenrokuayumibashi Bridge, Suzumibashi Bridge, Tokiwabashi Bridge, Tenjinbashi Bridge, Umenohashi Bridge, Asanogawa-ohashi Bridge, Nakanohashi Bridge, Kobashi Bridge, Hikoso-ohashi Bridge, Shoeibashi Bridge and Nakajima-ohashi Bridge.[4]

FacilitiesEdit

The river is equipped with walking path along it from Tokiwabashi Bridge to Nakajima-ohashi Bridge.[5]

The river is accessible from Kagatsume Station, Kitama Station, Okobata Station, Mitsuya Station, Mitsukuchi Station, Waridashi Station, Isobe Station, Kami-Moroe Station and Nanatsuya Station of Hokuriku Railroad.
