Irabu Ohashi, Miyakojima

4.6
Must see · Bridge · Tourist Spot
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.
