Photographer's Note

This is a colour version of the pic I took along time ago, but minus the boat, I hope you like it just as much

I took this picture in Suma, it was very near to Kobe, I found out that this bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world, I think it was built in 1998, but I will verify that for you.

It is the Akashi Kaikyo bridge.
Vital Statistics:
Location: Kobe and Awaji-shima, Japan
Completion Date: 1998
Cost: $4.3 billion
Length: 12,828 feet
Type: Suspension
Purpose: Roadway
Materials: Steel
Longest Single Span: 6,527 feet
Engineer(s): Honshu-Shikoku Bridge Authority

If we compare this bridge to the Golden gate bridge in San Francisco, the bridge is only 8981 feet in length.

The building ont he right is the only museum that centres on Sun Yet Sen, the famous Chinese man that wanted to over throw the corrupt Qing Dynasty with the help of the Japanese.

I hope you like it
