An astounding feat of engineering, Akashi Kaikyo Bridge holds the title of the longest suspension bridge in the world, spanning an incredible 3.9 km (2.4 mi). The product of 2 million workers and 10 years of work, the bridge was completed in 1998, using enough steel cable to circumnavigate the globe a mind-boggling seven times. On the Kobe side of the bridge, consider stopping by the Bridge Exhibition Center for extensive and well-presented information about the structure's design and construction. If you're feeling somewhat brave, take an elevator to the "Maiko Marine Promenade," affording views from 50 m (164 ft) up, below the main platform of the bridge. You can take a far more in-depth guided tour of the bridge if you're a real enthusiast, but bear in mind that this requires an advanced reservation.

Akashi Kaikyo Bridge Reviews
約４㎞ほどの全長がある世界最長の吊り橋で、本州と淡路島を結ぶ雄一の高速道路です。高速道路とはいっても流石に４㎞近くもあると渡り切るだけでもそこそこ時間がかかるので、クルマで走っているうちに、だんだん海を渡っているんだという実感が湧いてきました。 ただ、橋上にクルマを停めることはできないし、運転中に脇見をして景色を愛でるわけにもいかなかったのが残念です。 more »It is the world's longest suspension bridge with a total length of about 4 km, and is yuichi's highway connecting Honshu and Awaji Island. Even if there is a highway, it takes a moderate time even if there is almost 4km in the meteorite, and while i am driving, I have come to realize that I'm gradually crossing the sea. However, you can't park your car on the bridge, and it's a shame that you couldn't love the scenery by looking aside while driving.
夜出航の大阪南港発 新門司港行きに乗船した際、ライトアップされた明石海峡大橋の下を船で通りました。レインボーカラーにライトアップされた橋はとても綺麗で近くで見るととても迫力がありました。乗船していないと橋の下を通過できないのでいい経験になりました。 more »When we boarded the flight from Osaka South Port to Shinmoji Port, we sailed under the lighted-up Akashi Kaikyo Bridge. The bridge lit up in rainbow color was very beautiful and was very powerful when I saw it in the vicinity. It was a good experience because i can't pass under the bridge if I don't get on board.
You can enter the bridge and see a magnificent works of art from a truss bridge. Also, they provide food and beverages for you to buy inside
I am very impressed by the size of this bridge. It is so big that you have to see it in person to believe that it exists. Very nice.
