Ikuchi Bridge


The sun was getting low as I approached Ikuchi Bridge on the first day of my walk from Honshu to Shikoku along the Shimanami Kaido.


Connecting Innoshima with Ikuchijima, it is a cable-stayed bridge built in 1991.


The total length is 790 meters with the main span being 490 meters. The two supports are delta shaped.


Once across to Ikuchijima I had to find somewhere to lay my sleeping bag for the night.

  1. Looks nice
    Maybe they should've looked for a way to make all the concrete a little more unobstrusive
