Are you as brave as a Samurai?

Are you as brave as a Samurai? Could you walk across a thousand year old bridge made of vines? Follow in the footsteps of real warriors by crossing the Kazurabashi vine bridge in the Iya Valley of Japan. The bridge is made out of vines so that after crossing, the warriors could cut it down and escape their enemies. The Valley started with 13 bridges, however, only 3 are still standing. Today the bridge is reinforced with steel in order for the tourists to be able to cross. But don’t worry thrill-seekers, the boards are spread far enough for a foot to go through and the rapids below are swift enough to raise your heart rate. My challenge to you: go right down the middle without using the vines as support. Good luck!
