Kanmon Bridge, Shimonoseki

3.9
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. Kanmon Bridge is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Shimonoseki Edition.

  • And the Mainland is a suspension bridge connecting Kyushu. Suspension bridge in size among the largest in Japan, as seen from anywhere so beautiful. Cross this bridge as yourself from Kyushu, and "came back! "And I saw both beautiful scenery try over look around feel, coupled with a great view from the window, will be very high tension (lol), the drive is recommended!

  • Since construction began, passed near the well. Maintenance had been here about 2 years. Night lighting is practical. Kanmon tunnel and Akashi Kaikyo Bridge visitor centre at the foot of the not so nice day walk, passing ships overlooking Temple-believe in tea is good.

  • It is a landmark of the kanmon Strait. Across the fact there is a lot of fun views of more distant bridge, this bridge that one. From the Shimonoseki plain and Observatory from Moji port-side flat and Lookout, myriad viewing point from the sea and so on. Home enjoyed the distant from the Shimonoseki plain, and from the sea from Moji port-side flat, mid-December. Ships pass under the bridge, large and small with 1 800 vessels and touted.
