In the 33rd year of the Meiji Era (1900), a channel was artificially dug out as a passage for the warships of the Japanese Navy. However, the modern bridge is now an important transportation point. When the tide is going out, the tide flow multiplies the sea's swirls and rolls, and the scene is admired by people who view the scenery from the bridge. The current bridge is the third generation bridge.
