Kanmon Bridge, Shimonoseki
(4/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • Kanmon Strait from the parking area on either side of Honshu and Kyushu side makes sense across the barrier bridge that itself is quite exciting, but is the best.

  • I think one of gratuity when Yamaguchi traveling tourist destinations. Karato market looks better, so start your day on the set.
