“Awesome bridge to bike across”

Kurushima Kaikyo Bridge
Ranked #2 of 115 things to do in Imabari
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 December 2017

The Golden Gate Bridge has nothing on this glorious span. The views are fantastic, and the curved bike approach ramps on the way up and are a treat.

The fact that you can cycle across this fairly long bridge is an absolute treat! The view is spectacular and the bike lane is wide and smooth. I stopped often to take photos of the various islands in the Seto sea. However, it was a bit windy when I rode towards Imabari, and sometimes it was tough to peddle into the wind. But nonetheless, completely worth the effort. At night on weekends they light the whole thing up with special lights and the view from the shoreline is amazing (if staying in Imabari, opt for a place with a view of the bridge, like Sunrise Itoyama hotel).

Had fun traversing this bridge. The access is safe and not very busy. Took me 2 hrs on a old non-geared bike from
Imabari station to the Bridge and back. Left at 7 and was back at 9 for a good breakfast at the Imabari New Urban Hotel. Would highly recommend it

We cycled over this bridge (twice!) on a return trip from Onomichi to Imabari. It is spectacular, so much so that I was actually pleased it was a misty day so I couldn't see too far as I cycled over it. It sounds strange but it was enough for me to see the beaches a long way below! The cycle path is well marked and there is a segregated cycle path to get you from the coast road to the top of the bridge and along it. If you only do it one way, it is slightly easier from the Imabari side.

A wonder of human effort to build but difficult to see much while driving across in car. Probably better view via a bus or by bike. Still, something to experience.
