Rotating Bridge (Kaisenkyo)

This unusual bridge turns 90 degrees when ships pass through the waterway and connects the Amanohashidate landbridge and the Monju area.

The original bridge built in 1923 was hand-operated but was later made electric in May of 1960 due to any increase in the number of ships using the waterway.

If you see it turning, you are lucky!
