Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
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.

  • As the world's longest suspension bridge in Grand majestic is the size I can only say well done. Cars can't pin too large, part of the bridge and its enormity compared, as finally recognised. You can enjoy the beautiful bridge over the ferry from just because Sun sunset pass under the bridge, but there is also hope from the land of the illuminated figure.

  • When meimon Taiyo ferry rode from Shin-Moji port in the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge and walked through. As seen from near the ferry to catch was a special feeling.

  • From a few years ago, more than 1,000 yen in Bridge cross as well. And much cheaper than ever before, thankfully. Bridge both views there is a park on the side, so it's great. Climbing tower in the bridge world experience, and also from the Awaji on Awaji SA or OASIS overlooking Tokyo is also recommended for views of tower height.

  • This is the world's longest pendulum bridge and you can have the great view of it from the Kobe side. Entrance to see the bridge is free. You can watch the bridge exhibition center and promenade for 350 yen each. Exhibition center includes a great amount of information. There are a certain amount of information in English too. Small video clips in English were very useful. Also, the models of the structures are with very much of details. At the promenade, you can look the sea below you, going towards the sea along with the bridge (under the bridge). Also, you can have food while enjoying the scenery from the promenade.
  • As I was driving through the Akashi, I noticed it's pure elegance and structural counterparts. But, however, I noticed a flaw about this wonderful piece of artwork. The cosigns did not equally distribute with the sequential math that is needed to support the bridge. It's quite simple, really.
  • World longest & most expensive bridge. I like this wow.
