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.

  • Would you consider the big ships passing through the Strait go considerably higher above sea level, is a majestic figure. View from the bottom of 壇之浦, from the top and fire on the mountain will be from the observation deck of the Park.

  • The famous scenic spot of the city, access to the road between the nine continents and the four countries. The bridge is not long but Aleppo is great, and the rest station under the gate and the bridge can make very good pictures.
