Irabu Bridge, Miyakojima

(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Cross the ocean on Irabu Bridge, a bridge connecting the islands of Miyako and Irabu. Measuring 3,540 m (11,610 ft), the structure stands as one of the longest bridges in the world, and its island-hopping span has been impressively engineered, with construction starting in 2006 and taking nine years to complete. More convenient for locals than the ferries that used to cross the divide between the islands, the bridge still allows tourists to soak in the views at a pleasant pace. Speed limits on the bridge remain restricted, making it easier to admire the ocean, islands, and the bridge itself without holding up traffic. A viewing platform in the center provides a good place to snap some photos. Make Irabu Bridge part of your personalized Miyakojima itinerary using our Miyakojima holiday planner.

  • 這個橋ㄧ定要來開車ㄧ下!很美!橋中間有些地方可以停下來拍照!但要注意後方的車!或是橋頭有個小型停車場可以停車拍照 
  • A compelling, such as through the backs of dinosaurs like Irabu bridge! I want to cross the Miyako-jima 3橋 than ever before were achieved. Even midway shooting spot so guests can enjoy spectacular!
