Seto Bridge, Japan

(4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Great Seto bridge was opened in 4/1988 is the long-span bridges between Honshu and Shikoku across the Seto Inland Sea,. Six bridges and a viaduct four 9368 m total length, as railway and road bridges world up seems to be. The Shikoku railway journey in Marin liner rapid service from Jr Okayama station, cross the bridge going back to. Seto-Ohashi bridge between one of Kojima and sakaide passes at Yakushima 15 minutes. Sense of crossing the sea through the bottom of the bridge over the railway bridge and scenery from the train window is not good, but still exciting.

  • This is the first time while the Okayama prefectural Seto-Ohashi bridge. View from the train in Seto Inland Sea. Many islands. Ship Street is very nice scenery. See also the Seto-Ohashi bridge seen from the washuzan mountain. Kinda far. Seto-Ohashi bridge, across the island from the Kojima 6 mouth round was the best thing.

  • Aboard the marine liner trains from Okayama to sakaide side and crossed the bridge. The great word! Touching, but it was thought particularly dark iron ingredient is not spectacular, and also cut the shutters around the shot inspired by the who's the iron, when noticing lots and took the picture was. Good in good weather day. Was so happy in the movement of the train was a long time.
