Tamaru Bridge is one of 5 covered bridges in Uchiko. With its authentic cedar bark roof the bridge across the Fumoto River blends well into the idyllic landscape. The roof was actually built to make the bridge last longer, but as time went by it got used for temporary storage of the local harvest or as a shady meeting place for the community. It is a designated Tangible Folk Cultural Property of Uchiko. As rural landscape of that time, this place was chosen as the location for the drama "Clouds Above the Hill".
