Akashi Bridge (明石海峡大橋)
Akashi Kaikyō Ō-hashi) is a suspension bridge, which links the city of Kobe on the Japanese mainland of Honshu to Iwaya on Awaji Island. It crosses the busy Akashi Strait (Akashi Kaikyō in Japanese) as part of the Honshu–Shikoku Highway. It was completed in 1998, and has the longest central span of any suspension bridge in the world, at 1,991 metres (6,532 ft; 1.237 mi). It is one of the key links of the Honshū–Shikoku Bridge Project, which created three routes across the Inland Sea. (Wikipedia)
It is also the breathtaking view I was fortunate to arrive home to at JR Maiko Station (舞子駅) everyday for the last year of my 4 years of living and working in Japan (2002-2006.) How grateful I am to have had the chance to meet @_aya__h.a_ for a family photo shoot at the base of this nostalgic vision while recently in Japan. .
