Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, Hyogo Prefecture

(260+ reviews on the web)
Bridge Landmark
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.

  • Stunning bridge, currently the longest single span in the world. Info centre is interesting, has English displays. Observation point under the bridge itself also worth doing

  • Stunning view of the seascape and a fun easy drive. Probably the longest stretch of bridge of its kind in the world!
  • 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.
