The Shimanami Kaido Bridge, the world’s longest suspension bridge, is the toll road which connects Honshu (Japan’s main island) with Shikoku. Visitors on the Honshu side can access this bridge from Onomichi City in Hiroshima Prefecture while Imabari City in Ehime Prefecture is the access point from Shikoku. The bridge spans across the Seto Inland Sea which ramps on 6 Seto Inland Islands (Mukaishima, Innoshima, Ikuchijima, Omishima, Hakatajima and Oshima) allowing its users to visit these islands on their way to their destination.
With automobile lanes as well as separate bicycle and pedestrian paths, cycling and driving are popular options to access this 60 kilometer long toll road with its beautiful Seto Inland Sea scenery. However, there are bus services for those who wish to sit back and let someone else steer them along this bridge.
There are few direct buses between Onomichi and Imabari. There is one bus every three hours. The one-way journey takes about an hour and a half with a cost of 2250 yen. Visitors who do not mind transferring from the highway bus to the local bus at the Innoshima Ohashi bus stop will find the buses are more frequent. In case, please estimate the one-way journey to be an hour and a half to two hours with a cost of 2500 yen.
