Yokohama Bay Bridge is a suspension bridge with a total length of 860 meters that opened in 1989. It connects Honmoku Pier and Daikoku Pier in Yokohama Port and is part of the Shuto Expressway Bayside Line. The bridge is approximately 180 meters high and was designed not to obstruct the navigation of large ships. At night, it is lit up, creating a magical atmosphere.

Route to Yokohama Bay Bridge

I started from Ageo City, Saitama Prefecture. From National Route 17 and the Shin-Omiya Bypass, I entered Saitama Prefectural Route 124/Shuto Expressway Omiya Line/S5 at 3-chome, Saitama City. From there, I took Shuto Expressway No. 5 Ikebukuro Line/Route 5 and Shuto Expressway Chuo Loop Route/C2. At Oi JCT, I entered the Shuto Expressway Wangan Line. The destination is ahead on the right. The whole trip took about 2 and a half hours.

Especially from dusk to night, the illuminated cityscape and bridges look beautiful. You can also stop by Honmoku Pier or Daikoku Pier after crossing the bridge.
