The Kurushima-Kaikyō Bridge, which connects the island of Ōshima to the main part of Shikoku, is the world's longest suspension bridge structure and was completed in 1999. The bridge is part of the Shimanami Kaidō, an expressway that spans a series of islands and connects Hiroshima Prefecture in Honshū to Ehime Prefecture in Shikoku. The bridge and the expressway were both conceived by the Honshū-Shikoku Bridge Project.Arrange to visit Kurushima Kaikyo Bridge and other attractions in Imabari using our Imabari tour planner.

Kurushima Kaikyo Bridge Reviews
2018年11月の社員旅行でうかがいました。日本三大急潮が大橋の下に流れる名所ですが、大橋は上がレンタサイクルで渡ることもできます。今回は大橋の下のルートでしたが、来島急潮では海の下から噴き出る自然の不思議さを感じることが出来ます。 more »I was asked on a company trip in November 2018. It is a famous place where the three great tides of Japan flow under the bridge, but you can also cross the bridge by renting a bicycle up. It was a route under the bridge this time, but you can feel the wonder of nature spewing out from under the sea at the rapid tide of The Island.
田舎の家から見える来島海峡大橋・田舎に戻る時必ず通り、必ずこの橋を海側と展望台からと見学。海側・山側両方から見学して欲しい橋です。 more »When i return to the Kurishima Kaikyo Bridge and the countryside which can be seen from a house in the country, i always see this bridge from the sea side and the observatory. It is a bridge that I want you to see from both the sea side and the mountain side.
steep climb on 🚴🏻. One of the longest bridges in Japan with great views of imabari and the surrounding sea and islands
Driving across was a pretty cool experience, the bridge was not only spectacular but was so easy to drive across, take care though I did see an unmarked police car pull someone over, plenty of photos and videos can be taken by passengers whilst driving over this marvellous structure.
