    Ehime Imabari-shi Hakatacho-Miyakubocho
    This bridge located along the Shimanami Kaido road connects Hakata‐cho, Imabari City to Miyakubo Town. It is actually comprised of two bridges; the Hakata Bridge that connects Hakata Island with Michika Island and the Oshima Bridge that connects Michika Island with Oshima Island. The total combined length is 1,230 meters. Built using the latest technologies at the time, such as the safety-focused direct hanging bridge erection method, the bridge entered into service in 1988. The know-how accumulated through its construction would later be leveraged in the construction of bridges such as the Kurushima-Kaikyo Bridge.

Ehime Areas


Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
