  • This magnificent bridge spans a busy and rough sea passage. Visible from along the waterfront in Shimonoseki but is worth driving across too.  more »
  • It is a large bridge between Honshu and Kyushu. Since it is reserved for automobiles, pedestrians cannot walk. However you can appreciate its beauty from distance.  more »
