  • If you see postcards or magazines of Yamaguchi, more then likely the Tsunoshima bridge will pop up. This bridge is absolutely incredible and the whole island is gorgeous. There is a large parking lot....  more »
  • I came from Shimonoseki station, hence it was a bit difficult in terms of transportation (JR train ride) and then bus to the nearest station to the bridge. Please check which station your are coming.....  more »
  • A beautiful road trip, about 1.5 hours from Yamaguchi city. Arrive early morning or late afternoon for a better shot of this spectacular bridge and the surrounding water and land. When you arrive, I recommend driving over the bridge first to appreciate the length and how it moves across the water. Stop by at しおかぜコバルトブルービーチ for an ice cream and to dip your toes in the beautiful cobalt blue waters. Then head back for the iconic photo of Tsunoshima Bridge. Definitely recommend seeing this spot!
  • It was a beautiful view with the fine weather. The blue of the sky and the blue water really made for a spectacular vista.
