Kanmon Bridge, Shimonoseki

(4/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • There is a monument of the Genpei War battle fought in the Strait directly under the kanmon bridge, Shimonoseki. Also the parking. It is also great. The gateway to Kyushu, Moji at the front. Look kanmon bridge. And the ocean view! Karato market 12-minute walk. If the car you arrive in 3 minutes.

  • Shimonoseki trips observed from many places. You can see from the tourist destination of kanmon bridge Board, karato market, humanitarian tunnel near the kanmon Straits and Moji port Shimonoseki and MOJI, seen from anywhere, look cool. Sunny day and night illumination is also one who enlivened the scene. Also, like under the bridge is at key points in the route, including big international ship has passed. And the bridge of Honshu and makes me more and more majestic bridge new, and I think that has become an important bridge connecting Kyushu and historical turning point will be where it was.
