Trip Planner:   Asia  /  Japan  /  Seto Bridge

Seto Bridge, Japan

4.0
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. Put Seto Bridge on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Utazu-cho trip itinerary planner.

     This time, drove with his wife. Stunning bridge stunned both.  Saw the essence of the architecture of Japan now eternally. It is a road train, but there is a still to pass by car.

    Shuttled in Marin liner rapid service after a long pass by here several times already, but that's great monuments. Take so much pictures because the return sheets were behind the driver's seat of the lead vehicle, but still a great view! As a rail road bridges would scale is rare in the world. Bridge 10, seems beyond the 12 km is the sum of the parts of the bridge. Parts of the line there in time bullet trains to run is that seems to be.
