Kouri Bridge
古宇利大橋

MAPCODE Check description

We are talking here about one of the best spots in whole Okinawa and one of the most famous ones in Japan: the spectacular Kouri Bridge. By driving on it, the wide ocean from either side of the bridge makes for a spectacular view. No matter the time of day, you can enjoy a visit to the bridge since you can see the water changing into an emerald green or cobalt blue or even sunset orange. In Drive Japan and as tourism experts, we highly recommend this spot with a strong 5 stars.

It takes 90 minutes to drive due north by car from Naha to reach Kouri Island. The Kouri Bridge extends 1960m and connects the northern part of the main island of Okinawa to Kouri Island and Yagaji Island. The blue of the sea around is legendary famous as any pictures you will take here could be used as delightful postcards. Note that you can not park on the bridge. If you want to take the best pictures of your trip in Okinawa then we recommend going on the Kouri Ocean Tower, on the other side of the bridge. To make it simple, you should really not miss this spot as it will remain as one of your best souvenir in Okinawa.

Advice:
Please try to come during sunrise or sunset for the best views. Please use Kouri Ocean Tower MAPCODE for here.
It is also recommended to drop in at ""Michinoeki Haneji no eki(MC:485 454 210)"" before come to Kouri island. Then you can drive south side road which is much more scenic.
