The Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, with a length of almost four kilometers, is the world’s longest suspension bridge. Opened in 1998, it spans the Akashi Strait (Akashi Kaikyo) between Kobe and Awaji Island and is part of the Kobe-Awaji-Naruto Expressway.

How I took this Night View of Akashi Kaikyo Bridge

I got down at the Maiko Station, on the Sanyo Line. I had my Kansai Pass. If you want to stop at various stations just to take photos this pass makes it very cheap to travel around the Kansai region. One needs to cross the road and walk past the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge Exhibition Center on the left. A few meters away a small lane goes right to the edge of the Akashi Strait. The rocky bank is a beautiful spot to take a shot of the lovely bridge. I had reached the spot at around 5 pm. Light was pretty bright. At first I took some shots with a 10-stop ND filter. They came out “ok.” After that I walked further west along the coast but couldn’t find a better spot, so I walked back to the earlier spot and waited for the lights to come on and then took this shot. I used the 10-24mm nikkor at 24mm on my Nikon D7100. I lowered the aperture to F16 to slow down the shutter speed to get the water to look smooth.
