Bridge
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.

  • Moji port and karato looks bigger. Kanmon bridge drove by car can be had that don't have time to enjoy the scenery, so during the past. I think we have also seen from the ground.

  • This bridge was way to long. Service area before the passage through the Strait to ship to watch, here is an important area of maritime traffic is really good.

  • Volunteers of the Kumamoto earthquake relief supplies on the way to break a family picture. Other large bridges will be the topic now, but at that time was had an amazing thing.
