Acqua line Tokyo bay


People walking over the Godzilla steps in the Umihotaru island. The Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line connects two prefectures as Ryogoku bridge connected two feudal provinces in Edo times. It allows to cross Tokyo Bay through a tunnel from Kawasaki which literally rises out of the sea into a bridge that reaches Kisarazu in Chiba.


The artificial island of Umihotaru marks the transition between the bridge and tunnel segments of the Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line and provides a rest stop with restaurants, shops, and amusement facilities.
