It's the best one in my opinion out of many bridges around Miyako, there are several points during driving to pull over and enjoy the view. Do it on a sunny day and the contrasts of view are simply picturesque.

The architecture for this bridge is simple mesmerizing. Couldn't have picked the right bridge to see! It can get a bit windy at the peak of the bridge, but it was well worth the journey. Love it!

We rented a car crossing Irabu Bridge with amazing view over the sea! You could see the entire bridge from the observatory. Fantastic!

This bridge is a long bridge and it has a long slope. Best to visit by car as it is far from the hotel. But there is a place to stop on the bridge to admire the ocean view. Really beautiful sea and views.
