Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, Hyogo Prefecture

4.6
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.

  • The Mss Bridge is the world's largest hanging bridge (2018) on the side of the dance vehicle station. Near the Empathy Museum, Bridge Science Museum and other attractions. There is also a trail of fees. Its sunset view is very beautiful, there is a chance to be yellow to visit.

  • MSS Bridge has two sessions a day, and the Internet is ready to go. The beginning of the course was introduced through the film at the Science Museum in Bridge. After that, the crew takes you from the bridge to the main tower, and then it reaches the top of the tower 298 meters high. I thought it was great to see the whole thing, but the view from the top of the tower was worth the vote.
