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.

  • It is a bridge connecting Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture and sakaide, Kagawa world can be proud. Good weather and high winds soon becomes a closed two-wheeled train will be suspended, but is best. I think of Moya take views early in the morning and at night I can't see anything more than my good weather during the day is best.

  • JR via Seto-Ohashi bridge in the region of the Okayama and Takamatsu, often found the bridge and sea landscapes directly. And just one hour ride. It is very useful.

  • 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.
