Wednesday in Japan...Akashi Bridge Tour

I have blogged many times about my love of the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge. Also called the Pearl Bridge.
Both my sons were able to take the tour last summer, that took them up to the top of the bridge. So envious !
I have seen the bridge from the land, the Tako Ferry and a car ride but never from above. Maybe I should put this on my list of things I want to see on my next trip.
I think this is a terrific photo, beside my love of the subject the composition, colors and the feel of the photo is wonderful.

  1. I agree with you Parsip - this is a beautiful photograph. Not sure the square ones would care for it though.

    1. William, of anyone I know I think you would enjoy the height and view.
      not quite a mountain to climb but enjoyable.

    1. Lucky you... I love bridges !
      This bridge has the longest central span suspension bridge in the world.
      It is fabulous. At night the bridges lights change colors according to the weather. Perfect.
