Nice view

Took a little time to get there but it was worth it. View is really nice. Should visit this bridge as well as the other two on the island.

Water is shallow around the bridge between Miyakojima and Ikema. Gorgeous colors. We were in a taxi so we could look all we wanted. There is a small parking lot before you drive over to stop and take pictures as well as a parking lot just over the bridge on Ikema.

Nice drive. Not much else to say! We drove across this bridge a few times as we visited the different islands to explore.

As bridges go, this one's nice. It doesn't go anywhere exciting, but it's nice. You'll come across a rock formation shaped like a heart on Ikema Island, maybe have a sugar cane juice and then drive right back.

I drove there to Ikema island from Miyako, so beautiful the sceanary of the sea. It takes only 5 min on the bridge, but The bridge on the shallow is so good.

Some tourists haven't realized or just don't care that there's no emergency lane/turn-out. Instead, they'll just park their car wherever they want and expect you to go around them. That's fine (sorta) under most circumstances, but it can get very dangerous while descending. Please be careful while driving here. I found groups of tourists pulling over and crossing the roads...

This a wonderful piece of engineering as it conveniently connects Miyakojima with its small neighbouring island of Ikema. The views as you go across are spectacular - that crystal clear ocean a must take photograph.

It runs through the beautiful sea which shows a variety of colors from light emerald green to deep blue.

It's a beautiful bridge spanning two islands. It's worth crossing by foot, on bike, or by car. Then take a nice spin around the smaller island it connects to from Miyako.
