The bridge was constructed during the fifth five-year Plan but there was a desire to still name the Dasho Nishioka Bridge. The rationale behind the decision was that Panbang wanted to acknowledge Dasho Nishioka’s hard work The Royal Government of Bhutan decided to preserve the bridge not only in the memory of the late Nishioka but also as a tourist attraction.
Stand a few meters from the bridge, it is also known as Nishioka house. Dasho Nishioka constructed the house during the four Plans but he did not live there. Dasho Nishioka planted these trees.
