Setoohashi Bridge

Seto-ohashi Bridge is a collective term for the six bridges that connect Kojima in Okayama Prefecture on Honshu and Sakaide of Kagawa Prefecture on Shikoku, spanning five islands, namely Hitsuishi-jima Island, Iwaguro-jima Island, Wasa-jima Island, Yo-shima Island, and Mitsugo- jima Island in the Seto Inland Sea. The bridges took 40 years and a tremendous amount of money to build. The bridge is more than 13 kilometers long, and has become a major sightseeing spot. The upper level is for the Seto-Chuo Expressway, and the JR Seto-ohashi Line and a pass road share the lower level. The bridge is crowded with not only those who need to cross it but also many tourists.

The six bridges consist of three suspension bridges, two oblique suspension bridges, and one truss bridge. They are the essence of all available bridge-building technologies, and are beautiful. The silhouettes glowing in the setting sun are particularly beautiful. The bridges are illuminated after sunset.

You can see the entire bridges from the top of Mt. Washu-zan that juts out at the southwestern edge of the Kojima-hanto Peninsula. Pleasure boats cruise from Kojima Sightseeing Port and Yo-shima Island to provide a view from the sea. It is a pleasure to compare the different angles for each course and boat.
