The Yamayurinotsuri Bridge was built in the Hatakejimo district, a zone that holds close ties to the imperial household. It was modeled after the first steel-made suspension bridge of Japan within the Imperial Palace. The illumination and stone paving are reminiscent of the Taisho Roman and give it a graceful appearance.
The name of the bridge originates from a verse in "Konjiki Yasha (Golden Demon)", a story written by Ozaki Koyo. This land makes an appearance in said work, where Kanichi compares his feelings towards Omiya to the golden-rayed lilies (yamayuri).
