Cross the ocean on Irabu Ohashi, a bridge connecting the islands of Miyako and Irabu. Measuring 3,540 m (11,610 ft), the structure stands as one of the longest bridges in the world, and its island-hopping span has been impressively engineered, with construction starting in 2006 and taking nine years to complete. More convenient for locals than the ferries that used to cross the divide between the islands, the bridge still allows tourists to soak in the views at a pleasant pace. Speed limits on the bridge remain restricted, making it easier to admire the ocean, islands, and the bridge itself without holding up traffic. A viewing platform in the center provides a good place to snap some photos. A visit to Irabu Ohashi represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Miyakojima trip builder app to plot your vacation.
Irabu Ohashi reviews
like a beatles song, but made of concrete and steel. Undulating over the aquamarine waters below. Trafficked by leadfooted tourii and lethargic locals as well. It gets you from point A to point B...

you can see the a whole bed of turqoise water when going over the bridge. I went there with the taxi but it was too windy to go out to take pic

One of the most popular tourist attractions in Miyako, the 3,540m long Irabu Ohashi Bridge connects Miyako Island and Irabu Island. As you drive across the bridge you can look over the turquoise ocean. Loved the he unique view as you go up and down the unique curve of the bridge.
Amazing demonstration of architecture.. Really beautiful and that too without toll charges.
