Yobuko Ohashi Bridge is a road bridge that connects Yobuko, which is famous for its morning market, and Kabejima, a remote island. It has an elegant exterior that is perfect for the bridge that connects Kabe Island, which has a romantic legend.
With a total length of 727m and a span length of 250m, it is the largest concrete cable-stayed bridge in Japan.
This type of cable-stayed bridge is called a harp bridge because of its appearance. This is because you can see the wire stretched out from the support, like the strings of a harp. Due to its majestic and elegant appearance, it has been selected as number one on the list of ``100 Newest Views.''
For those who want to see the bridge up close, we recommend the Benten Promenade, which runs from the parking lot next to the bridge. The orange promenade extends to the bridge, so you can see the dynamic Yobuko Ohashi Bridge up close.
For those who want to see the whole Yobuko Ohashi Bridge, we also recommend Kaze no Mieru Oka Park. From this park, you can see not only Yobuko Ohashi Bridge but also Ogawa Island and Karatsu Island.
