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.

  • It is a connecting Honshu and Awaji island, world's longest suspension bridge. Was made to run up to Tarumi Internet surprising after touring the maiko marine promenade at the foot of the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge, Akashi Kaikyo Bridge to cross practice and went to the nearest interchange is approximately 6 km away.
