Great Seto Bridge, Kurashiki

4.0
#1 of 9 in Scenic Drive in Chugoku
The only double-deck bridge of the six bridges connecting Honshu and Shikoku islands, Great Seto Bridge spans over 13 km (8 mi) across the Seto Sea, carrying two railway lines on its lower deck. A marvel of engineering which took a decade to complete, the bridge complex has become a major tourist attraction. You can take a pleasure boat tour from Kojima sightseeing port to admire the bridge from below, or simply hop on a train to get spectacular views from the bridge itself. It takes 20 minutes to cross the bridge by train or by car. Nearby, three suspension bridges, two oblique suspension bridges, and one truss bridge make great silhouettes, and add to the scene when illuminated after sunset.

  • At that time, it was very epoch-making because shikoku and a part of the island in the Seto Inland Sea were connected by a series of bridges.

  • From Okayama, we went to Takamatsu by marine liner and we went to The Seto Ohashi Bridge after a while. The view from the train which is more leisurely than the car is excellent. It is not seen when driving, and it is not possible to take the photograph in the car when riding, and it is not possible to take the photograph. If you're on a train, you can enjoy the view with a beer in one hand.
