Tsuruta is known for being home to the longest wooden footbridge in Japan. There is a popular belief that you will live a long life if you cross it.
Another attraction in the town is Fujimi Lake where every year a popular cherry blossom festival takes place. The famous volcano Iwaki is, by the way, also seen from there.
