  • It takes about 40 minutes by car from the center of Shimonoseki City. The nearest station is takibe station or special cow station. There are a lot of Insta shine spots. If you like to travel, be sure to go.

  • Because the weather was comparatively good even if it was not refreshing, I imagined the color of a beautiful sea and went as the next sightseeing spot of Motonosumi Inari Shrine. Because it was cloudy sky when I went first, it was the color of the sea which responded to it, but the color of the sea around the Kakushima Ohashi Bridge of this time was glad because it was comparatively beautiful. I made a U-turn at the lighthouse at the edge of Kakushima across the bridge and made my way home.

  • A beautiful road trip, about 1.5 hours from Yamaguchi city. Arrive early morning or late afternoon for a better shot of this spectacular bridge and the surrounding water and land. When you arrive, I recommend driving over the bridge first to appreciate the length and how it moves across the water. Stop by at しおかぜコバルトブルービーチ for an ice cream and to dip your toes in the beautiful cobalt blue waters. Then head back for the iconic photo of Tsunoshima Bridge. Definitely recommend seeing this spot!
  • It was a beautiful view with the fine weather. The blue of the sky and the blue water really made for a spectacular vista.
