Connecting Shikoku and Honshu, this worlds-first three-stage suspension bridge runs across the Kurushima Strait—a rough spot of sea known as the three rapids whirlpool of Seto Inland Sea. The Kurushima-kaikyo Bridge stretches for 4.1 kilometers and features a road for motor vehicles, as well as a scooter lane and a bicycle/pedestrian lane. You can get a great view of the grand Seto Inland Sea from on top of the bridge. This place is also famous for its evening views, as it holds many nighttime illumination events regularly.
