Modern Marvels: The World's Longest Bridge

For centuries Japan dreamed of linking together all of its major islands, with the aim to make transportation between them faster, easier, and safer.

The onset of World War II, however, delayed this quest until the 1960s, when the idea was once again brought to the fore. In 1998, the final element in this master plan was completed with the opening of the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge, the longest single-span suspension bridge in the world. In this program, Modern Marvels® documents each stage of the Akashi-Kaikyo's 10-year construction, from the initial sketches to the triumphant opening of festivities. Meet the people whose efforts helped to build this marvel of modern architectonics, and watch as the bridge's revolutionary design passes the ultimate test - weathering the massive shocks from the 1995 Kobe earthquake.

From mere concept to awe-inspiring reality, join The History Channel® for a behind-the-scenes look at Japan's famous Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge.
