Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line (東京湾アクアライン)
Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line is a 15.1 kilometer long toll road, for cars only, which crosses Tokyo Bay, linking Kisarazu City in Chiba Prefecture with Kawasaki City in Kanagawa Prefecture. From the Kisarazu side, there is a 4.4 kilo meter long bridge, which connects to a roughly 9.5 kilometer long undersea tunnel before reaching the Kawasaki side. On the artificial island at the point where the bridge links to the tunnel, there is a parking and rest area called Umihotaru, one of very few such marine parking areas in the world. From the top level of the Umihotaru building, which was designed to resemble a luxury cruise ship, visitors can enjoy a spectacular 360-degree panoramic view, including Yokohama Bay Bridge, the skyscrapers of Tokyo's Shinjuku district, and even as far as Mt. Fuji.
