Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, Hyogo Prefecture

An astounding feat of engineering, Akashi Kaikyo Bridge holds the title of the longest suspension bridge in the world, spanning an incredible 3.9 km (2.4 mi). The product of 2 million workers and 10 years of work, the bridge was completed in 1998, using enough steel cable to circumnavigate the globe a mind-boggling seven times. On the Kobe side of the bridge, consider stopping by the Bridge Exhibition Center for extensive and well-presented information about the structure's design and construction. If you're feeling somewhat brave, take an elevator to the "Maiko Marine Promenade," affording views from 50 m (164 ft) up, below the main platform of the bridge. You can take a far more in-depth guided tour of the bridge if you're a real enthusiast, but bear in mind that this requires an advanced reservation.

    Strait Ohashi bridge the young Geisha of Honshu and Awaji island cave. Of course on the bridge to stop block. Maiko high speed bus connected to the JR station, from the bridge deck to see how 1 simple. You can then look up bridge from the port-side cave. Stylish city of Akashi, Kobe is a little on the other side. Where a maniac in Genoa line from below. I think bridge anyway enjoy from various angles.

    When in a car in Shikoku Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge, often use. Think that was done after this bridge was crossed by ferry is faster, is a good thing. Beautiful bridges, even the color of the illumination range by day and beautiful. 1/17 of the Hanshin-Awaji great earthquake occurred, the bells of the Requiem will be white.

    Website introduction of the tour and visit opportunities sought. Cancel: to apply for the day after the passage of Typhoon No. 18, and participated. That the conditions of participation, to walk & sea level for passage towards that it is not afraid of heights, Tower is under the road about 1 km walk from the grating looks will be raised again. Lift up hatch out atop the Tower, and 360 ° view opens. Looking from the top rope and Road cannot be seen only here. The observation deck of the Tower 138-there was no fear, surrounded by walls of 158 cm. In the mood for the expedition, are well worth a visit.

    Worth a stop between Kobe and Himeji to see closer one of the longest span bridge in the world. At the Maiko promenade you can enjoy Sun Yat-sen, Kinoshita-ke House, which is a Japanese style building constructed before the World War Ⅱ, and Mutou-sanji-tei House, which is a western style building during Meiji Era.
