Yokohama Bay Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge located about 2 km east of Yamashita park.
It is built over Yokohama Port from north to south in 1989.
The length is 860 meters, and this bridge is for cars.
It has no walkway.
This bridge is a part of the expressway running along the coast line of Tokyo Bay.
We can see the bridge at any place of Yokohama Port.
But this bridge has a problem.
The height of the bridge above sea level is about 55 meters.
