Linking Honshu to Awaji Island, the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge has the longest central span of any suspension bridge in the world. It sits over a major shipping lane, which demands the span rises more than 60 metres above sea-level.
It’s an imposing sight, visible from large parts of Kobe (only a hill blocks my view of it from my home office). If you go down to the coast, chances are you’ll see it on the horizon.
Fun fact: the span is 1 metre longer than originally designed. The Great Hanshin Earthquake, which devastated Kobe, moved Awaji Island further away from the Honshu coast.
