Irabu Ohashi, Miyakojima

4.6
Cross the ocean on Irabu Ohashi, a bridge connecting the islands of Miyako and Irabu. Measuring 3,540 m (11,610 ft), the structure stands as one of the longest bridges in the world, and its island-hopping span has been impressively engineered, with construction starting in 2006 and taking nine years to complete. More convenient for locals than the ferries that used to cross the divide between the islands, the bridge still allows tourists to soak in the views at a pleasant pace. Speed limits on the bridge remain restricted, making it easier to admire the ocean, islands, and the bridge itself without holding up traffic. A viewing platform in the center provides a good place to snap some photos. A visit to Irabu Ohashi represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Miyakojima trip builder app to plot your vacation.

  • It was so beautiful that I could always see it. I was impressed by the horizon that continued everywhere because i couldn't see the horizon in the sea where I live. However, it was regrettable that there was a person who stopped the car in the middle of the bridge and took the photograph. Let's observe manners!

  • Miyako Island has three remote island bridges. Irabe Ohashi is the longest distance and is 3540 m. That's why it's worth running. The road has an up-down, and it adds charm to the appearance, and the charm of the running car window is made to be up. Down the slope, the sea of Miyako Blue spreads on both sides! Exhilarating feeling as if it were sucked in. I'm glad that this wonderful bridge can be crossed for free. It is careful not to put out too much speed because it is pleasant.
