Kanmon Bridge

Mojiko Retro area History and historic sites / See / Play

This is an iconic rope bridge across the Kanmon Strait, connecting Moji-ku in Kitakyushu City and Shimonoseki City in Yamaguchi Prefecture. This 1,068-meter-long bridge was the longest rope bridge in Asia when it was open to public use in 1973. In consideration of the landscapes, the bridge is colored in greenish gray, and well matches the blue sea and greenery surrounding the bridge. You can enjoy various views of the bridge from different positions: for example, closely looking up at the bridge from the seaside promenade in Mekari on the Moji side or enjoying its overall view from Hinoyama on the Shimonoseki side. The bridge is illuminated at night, so you can also enjoy a dramatic view of the illuminated bridge.
