More than 30 years have passed since the bridge was inaugurated. But it was my first time to use this bridge to travel to Shikoku. The view from the train was, in spite of some bridged beams, wonderful.

Another great bridge connecting Shikoku Islands. A nice drive along and good to have a detour stop in the middle.

Beautiful sunset

Our plan was to go to the observatory deck to watch the sunset and not walking on the bridge..so we took the bus from Kojima station and there is a bus that will bring us there and return..bus will stop at the different hotels along the way before reaching the observatory. There is a rather big souvenir shop there and also a walking trail that brings you to the other side re: city view. Sunset was amazing with the bridge as the backdrop. The next day we took the train to Takamatsu, Shikoku..a different experience when you are in the train..crossing the bridge..

Checked out the view of the Great Seto bridge from different viewing points and the view was fastastic and breathtaking. We also crossed the bridge 2 times and didn’t notice any vibration while doing the crossing. The first segment of this bridge was built by the parent company of my client!

Tourism must be improved

We stayed one night at a nearby hotel to see this great bridge. Unfortunately there is no attractions nor transportations convenient for tourists, even the access to nearby islands is scarce. That might be why this beautiful area is getting less popular. It is such a waste for a sightseeing gem being unable to gain any benefits.

Stunning Sunset but need stamina for uphill

Very good sunset
Can actually see the sun lower clearly below mountains

Bus driver Very nice though don't speak English
Give clear instruction on leaving time (no other transport available unless driving)

Tight timeline
Be prepared to run up to hill top to catch sunset!

Return time will be 30 mins earlier if didn't pick up any hotel guests in between

WOW! This bridge is just cool to see

This is the tricky part. I tried looking at everyone's tips on how to get here.
I did appreciate everything I read. Regardless, still not easy.
Also used Google maps to help.

Here we go.
My friend and I took the train from Okayama Station to Kojima Station. Which is the last stop before you cross the bridge. You can also go to the stop, on the other side of the bridge, and some how make your way back, to get a good view of the bridges. But I found this side, has an area/ observation spot for great views & great picture taking.
Also note. If you plan to walk from this station to the bridge, you'll be looking at an hours walk. Not to mention hilly.

We couldn't find much luck in the way of buses to get us there, so we opted for the cab ride. Luckily my friend speaks Japanese & made thing's a lot easier.
We were lucky to get a really nice cab driver, that wanted to take us on a small tour, when we mentioned the Seto Bridge. He took us to the observation area, down to the base, thru a small fishing village, and then back to Kojima Station. Really nice gentleman and for the time that we were in the cab. It only cost me $40.

A great experience nonetheless and a place definitely worth checking out.

Just a side note.
If you are going during the day and maybe want to see the bridge at night, then maybe type in Washuzan Highland. It's a theme park that is in between the Kojima Station & the Seto bridge. We were going to go there but it was raining that day.

Highway in the sky.

We drove from Kyoto to Takamatsu as our guide wanted to show us the Seto-Ohashi bridge. We were fascinated as the bridge is suspended over paddy fields of rice and small villages. The 'off ramps' were spiral and we enjoyed being taken down a spiral to look at the underside of the bridge. It is amazing how the Japanese have built the bridge from island to island each section a different style. In fact the highway from Kyoto to Takamatsu is suspended above the land to allow the population to carry on with their lives unencumbered by a large road. It was an experience never to forget.

Stunning Views

The Seto Bridge is one of the three bridges leading to Shikoku Island, and the only one which trains are able to cross, so is an important access point for the island. However, it is not just a convenient route for getting from one place to another; the Seto Ohashi has incredible views of the Inland Sea dotted with small islands. The view is best from the top platform where cars run, but the MarineLiner train also has decent views from the lower deck.

Beautiful bridge

The Great Seto Bridge or Seto Ōhashi is a double deck bridge connecting Okayama and Kagawa prefectures in Japan across some small islands in the Seto Inland Sea. It is one of the three bridges connecting Honshū and Shikoku islands, and is the only one with railway included. We used all the three bridges in our recent visit to Shikoku. Very enjoyable drive over these bridges.
