The bridge that connects Western Honshu with Kyushu spanning the Kanmon Straits which is less than a kilometer wide. Kyushu island's mild climate and geothermal character creates a land of undulating green countryside, ancient volcanic cones and some great hot-spring resorts.

Must go there twice. Once in day-time and once during night time. You can go uphill in the Mekari Park to have a breath-taking view of the bridge. There is a tunnel nearby for pedestrians to cross the Kanmon Strait on foot.

Kanmon strait is between Honshu island and Kyushu island. The Kanmon bridge connects to Moji town and Shimonoseki city. There are four tunnels under the Kanmon strait. For Shinkansen express, local trains, cars and pedestrians.

The scenery is fantastic, and the steady stream od large ships plying the straits add to the interesting nature of the area. You can walk under the straits (no bikes or pedestrians on the bridge) and there are places where you can sit, sip a coffee or a beer, and enjoy the scenes.
