Kouri Bridge

Description of the Kouri Bridge

The bridge connects Yagaji Island on the Okinawa mainland side with Kouri Island, a small round island that is 1 km in radius. The bridge is 1,960 meters long, the second longest toll-free bridge in Japan and the longest in Okinawa. As it is an open road bridge, you can feel as if you are driving on the emerald green sea. The color of the sea changing as you drive forwards on the bridge is very beautiful and eye-grabbing. Beautiful beach spreads near the bridge on the side of Kouri Island. You can enjoy looking at the bridge stretching straight above the water. Not only views of blue sea in the daytime on a sunny day are amazing, but also the view of sunset from Kouri Bridge is superb. Kouri Island has a legend like Okinawa-version of "Adam and Eve," and for a long time it has been called the "island of love," or the "island of the gods."

Access

It takes roughly 40 minutes from the Kyoda Exit of the Okinawa Expressway to get to of Kouri Island. If you use non-toll roads, it takes roughly 130 minutes by car from the Naha Airport.
