Kamagari Bridge


n3147

The Kamagari Bridge connects Shimokanagari Island with Kamagari (sometimes known as Kamikamagari) Island in the Akin Nada Island chain in the Inland Sea in Hiroshima.

n3193

It is a truss-style bridge with a span of 480 meters.

n3194

It was completed in 1979, which I believe makes it the first of the 8 bridges that now connect the Akinada Islands.

  1. Jake, is it possible to cycle across from the mainland to Shimokanagari ? These are a group of islands I would like to see by bicycle on one of my trips to Japan.
