A series of double-decker bridges spans a group of small islands for 13 km to connect Honshu with Shikoku across the Inland Sea, the longest bridge of its kind in the world. The upper deck is for cars while the lower one is for trains. The Great Seto bridge took 10 years to build, finally opening in 1988. This engineering marvel can be viewed from a variety of vantage points, and of course you can simply drive across it.
