Interestingly, the bridge approach was designed according to a pupil’s idea to minimize the room taken by it. People also can get onto the main bridge by elevator, opening from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. But we chose to drive through the bridge approach to enjoy the charm of the whole bridge. It was fairly amazing.
