The Kurushima-Kaikyo Bridge connects the island of Oshima to the main part of Shikoku in Japan was completed in 1999. It is the world’s longest suspension bridge structure. It consists of three successive suspension bridges with six towers and four anchorages. The bridge’s total length is 4,015 metres. (data from wiki)

Join me as we ride the cargo vessel M/V Star Evviva in passing the Kurushima-Kaikyo bridge.

Here’s the bridge from a distance.

It’s getting dark now and we’re a bit far from the bridge and it’s time for the fishing boat to get busy.
