Cross the ocean on Irabu Ohashi, a bridge connecting the islands of Miyako and Irabu. Measuring 3,540 m (11,610 ft), the structure stands as one of the longest bridges in the world, and its island-hopping span has been impressively engineered, with construction starting in 2006 and taking nine years to complete. More convenient for locals than the ferries that used to cross the divide between the islands, the bridge still allows tourists to soak in the views at a pleasant pace. Speed limits on the bridge remain restricted, making it easier to admire the ocean, islands, and the bridge itself without holding up traffic. A viewing platform in the center provides a good place to snap some photos. A visit to Irabu Ohashi represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Miyakojima trip builder app to plot your vacation.
Irabu Ohashi Reviews
2度目の来訪でした。前は車で過ぎ去ってしまいましたが、伊良部島側で車を止めてゆっくり見ました。橋の下のほうに降りる階段があります。浅瀬の海がとてもきれいです。海に降りてる人もいましたが、自己判断で。 more »It was my second visit. It was gone by car before, but I stopped the car on the Irabu island side and watched slowly. There is a staircase down to the bottom of the bridge. The sea of shallow water is very beautiful. Some people were going down to the sea, but by self-judgment.
坐在車上看到大橋及海洋，舒服休閒的感覺，可惜天氣不太好，海的確清澈，靜靜看看有種人生哲理的感受，這是生活吧 more »Sit on the car to see the big and the ocean, comfortable feeling, but the sky is not very good, the sea is clear, look at a kind of philosophy of life feeling, this is life
It’s the most stunning bridge I had ever seen in the world. The sea view is spectacular at all time! Love this place so much .
Very nice view, you can park for a while on the bridge.
