乱橋 Random Bridge

Updated: Jan 23, 2020

Near the Myochoji Temple in Zaimokuza, there is a stone historical marker near a small stone bridge along the busy bus route that connects Omachi and Zaimokuza. It reads:

This bridge is one of the 10 Bridges of Kamakura.  It is a stone bridge whose name was written as both 乱 (Rebellion) and  濫 (Abuse) Bridge. There was a tree on the south side of this bridge that was famous.  According to the Azuma Kagami, around 4 am on June 18th, 1248, snow fell on that side of the bridge and the area turned as white as frost.  It is one of the ten bridges along the narrow Sakakawa stream between Omachi and Zaimokuza.

Erected in March of 1929 by the Kamakura Seinendan Young Adult Association.
