The Ōnaruto Bridge (大鳴門橋 Ōnaruto-kyō, lit. "Great Naruto Bridge") is a suspension bridge on the route connecting Minamiawaji, Hyogo on Awaji Island with Naruto, Tokushima on Ōge Island, Japan. Completed in 1985, it has a main span of 876 metres (2,874 ft). Although it is one of the largest bridges in the world, it is dwarfed by the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge, which is on the same route. In 2004, 6.8 million cars and trucks crossed this bridge, translating into a daily average of about 18,600. The bridge is complemented by the Konaruto Bridge ("Small Naruto Bridge") and Muya Bridge between Ōge Island and Shikoku.

Ōnaruto Bridge, Osaka Reviews - Write a Review

  • Must see item. The whirlpool will only be seen at the high tide period. Pls check the time before going.

  • CHECK the best times for whirlpool viewing beforehand! Only caught the end of the whirlpools, but still nice views and nice photo spots along the walkway.

  • A bright SUNNY day ☀️let's stop awhile and take a photo 😎

  • My friend advises me that this is a very popular tourist destination with Japanese but sadly not many actually get here, well I did and I think more should go as it is truly spectacular. The whirlpools are terrific and are caused by two seas coming together, to see this standing on the glass platform is great, a few people were sceptical to stand wondering how secure the glass is but everything is safe. I kept thinking of 2 things, 1 is that if you fell into the water you wouldn't stand a chance and the other is I bet the fish from this area would taste very, very fresh. Please go, it's spectacular.

  • Worth passing through if you're in the area; especially for structural engineers. Viewing deck under the main bridge lets you see the whirlpools clearly through reinforced glass floors. There is also a museum and guided tour to the open walkway under the bridge that should be a treat for structural engineers.
