Tatara Bridge

多々羅大橋

The Tatara Bridge (Tatara Ohashi) connecting the island of Ikuchijima in the Inland Sea with Omishima, boasts a center span of 890m and the Tatara Bridge was the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world when it was completed in 1999. It took about 7 years to construct. Tatara Ohashi is now the 4th longest cable-stayed bridge in the world.
