The bridge marks the beginning or end of the Shimanami Kaido depending which direction you are coming or going to. The route is cycling friendly, so look out for the cycling path up the bridge and the scene along the way is breath taking.

A wonder of human effort to build but difficult to see much while driving across in car. Probably better view via a bus or by bike. Still, something to experience.

I wish I had a bicycle to do this trip, it would be a unique experience, the Inland Sea is a beautiful place and this bridge has made Shikoku more accessible

The drive is a NE direction from Imabari headed straight to Ominichi.. I suppose the sun would be on your right in the morning drive or left for the evening. So the answer is no, it would not setting behind Ominichi
