Seto Bridge, Japan

4.2
#6 of 133 in Scenic Drive in Japan
The only double-deck bridge of the six bridges connecting Honshu and Shikoku islands, Seto Bridge spans over 13 km (8 mi) across the Seto Sea, carrying two railway lines on its lower deck. A marvel of engineering which took a decade to complete, the bridge complex has become a major tourist attraction. You can take a pleasure boat tour from Kojima sightseeing port to admire the bridge from below, or simply hop on a train to get spectacular views from the bridge itself. It takes 20 minutes to cross the bridge by train or by car. Nearby, three suspension bridges, two oblique suspension bridges, and one truss bridge make great silhouettes, and add to the scene when illuminated after sunset.

  • There are some bridges of Honshu and Shikoku railway passes two-storey bridge was just here. Seto-Ohashi bridge is like that of several bridges. Seto-Ohashi bridge seen from yoshima parking area along the way, is a point of view looks pretty big. Pass by the train looks clean.

  • Some think will visit several times for my husband's family-related, but you want to see slow train is nice, but not suitable for photos.... Didn't see the cars, but still tourist-friendly to, and driving speed too slow, not so dangerous. Please be careful because there are cars that run at a very slow speed on scenic tourist season, so.... So slowly you'd like to see car and parking it in. Tourist season and is in charge of space that guides you.
