4/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Extending 712 m (2,336 ft) between its two towers, Kanmon Bridge symbolizes the expanses of the Kanmon Strait. Accessible via an underwater tunnel, which includes a pedestrian walkway, the boundary between the two connected prefectures of Yamaguchi and Fukuoka offers a popular photo setting. At night, the suspension bridge lights up, appearing to float above the water.
