I started the route from Itoyama Sunrise. It takes about 40 minutes to cycle moderately from Itoyama to Ooshima. The bridge itself offered very spectacular views, from the beginning until the end. You may find the Ooshima attractions' map right before the winding route from...More

We made a brief stop at the Rest Area before crossing the Bridge to go up Mt. Kiro for a full view, which was worth the time.

We cycled over this bridge (twice!) on a return trip from Onomichi to Imabari. It is spectacular, so much so that I was actually pleased it was a misty day so I couldn't see too far as I cycled over it. It sounds strange but...More

A wonder of human effort to build but difficult to see much while driving across in car. Probably better view via a bus or by bike. Still, something to experience.

The drive is a NE direction from Imabari headed straight to Ominichi.. I suppose the sun would be on your right in the morning drive or left for the evening. So the answer is no, it would not setting behind Ominichi
