Kanmon Bridge is the suspended bridge crossing the Kanmon Straits, a stretch of water

separating two of Japan’s four main islands.

On the Honshu side of the bridge is Shimonoseki and on the Kyushu side is Kitakyushu-city.

The Kanmon-kyo bridge was opened to vehicles in 1973 and connected the Kyushu Expressway

in 1984. It is the 34th largest suspension bridge in the world with a central span of 712 meters.
