Create an itinerary including Great Seto Bridge
The only double-deck bridge of the six bridges connecting Honshu and Shikoku islands, Great Seto Bridge spans over 13 km (8 mi) across the Seto Sea, carrying two railway lines on its lower deck. A marvel of engineering which took a decade to complete, the bridge complex has become a major tourist attraction. You can take a pleasure boat tour from Kojima sightseeing port to admire the bridge from below, or simply hop on a train to get spectacular views from the bridge itself. It takes 20 minutes to cross the bridge by train or by car. Nearby, three suspension bridges, two oblique suspension bridges, and one truss bridge make great silhouettes, and add to the scene when illuminated after sunset.

  • Another great bridge connecting Shikoku Islands. A nice drive along and good to have a detour stop in the middle.

  • Even when navigating the Seto Inland Sea in the middle of the night, it is easy to understand because all the bridges flash at the same time.
  • As of 2021, it is still one of the world's first class bridges for road and railroads. Your Setoo Bridge.
