About the Tokyo Wan Aqua-Line Expressway
As an aggregation of state-of-the-art technologies and know how, the Tokyo Wan Aqua-Line Expressway was referred to as the “Apollo project of civil engineering.” Crossing through the middle of Tokyo Bay, it is made up of approximately 10km of tunnel (Aqua Tunnel) and 5km of bridge (Aqua Bridge). At the middle of The Tokyo Wan Aqua-Line Expressway, there is the “Umihotaru (Sea Firefly) ,” a marine rest area surrounded by the waters of Tokyo Bay which attracts a large number of customers daily.
