Akashi kaikyo bridge is an incredibly long bridge.
This place located near our hotel, actually I saw it from the window at our hotel room. Then we decided to go waterside to see the bridge.

The exhibits and displays at the various observation areas near exhibithon centers shows you the construction process and history about the bridge.
There were people fishing and running. Watched the bridge for a while and got back to the hotel before gets dark.

A short distance from Maiko JR station is the Maiko Marine Promenade. From here, you can see the Akashi Kaikyo Suspension bridge. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall is also here, which you can pay a fee to enter. A nice place to take beautiful photos.

Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, which links between Kobe and Awajishima island, is one of the major gateways from Honshu to Shikoku. To cross the strait, you have to drive a car, but to admire this bridge and take pictures, it is enough to take a walk around Maiko Park. JR Maiko is the nearest station.

May not be for everyone, if you fear heights may not be the tour to take. But if you have an interest in engineering and building may be of interest.

We have read about this bridge and seen photos of it in travel guide n websites.
Nothing can compare how we felt when we drove across it; to see the engineering feat n accomplishments; splendor and awesomeness.
Just wow !!!

Connecting Across from Kobe to Awaji-Shi island, there’s a park where we stop to see the bridge in full splendor. Just amazing!!!

Built in 1998 which connects Kobe to Iwaya in Awaji Island stands the longest central pan suspension bridge in the world - the Akashi Kaiyko Bridge. The bridge is 3911 m long with the central span the longest. The bridge can withstand Typhoons and 8.5 magnitude earthquakes. If you plan to cross the bridge the toll fee is 2300 yen. We went there from Osaka taking the JR Kobe Rapid line to Maiko station and from there can walk 3 to 5 mins from the West side. The bridge is free but the exhibition costs about 310 yen. We didn't go inside the exhibition but instead we just walked towards the bridge and its monument where we took great photos and videos together. It was also sunset so we marvelled at the sun while setting down. There are very few tourists and locals around so it was a pretty quiet and less crowded day. We didn't get a chance to cross the bridge by car to Awaji island but will definitely try it next time around. So if you visit Kobe, try passing by Maiko and marvel at the longest suspension bridge in the world.

Nice bridge with good views. The longest suspension bridge in the world. It can get quite windy up on the deck. Not sure if it’s worth the time since there are so many things to do around Kansai.

Passed below the bridge on a ferry from Takamatsu. Seeing how long this bridge suspended in the air is just incredible. One to always be amazed by.

We stopped here on our way back to Osaka after visiting Himeji Castle. It was beautiful, awe inspiring, and the attendants in the promenade were so sweet and attentive. We arrived at the end of the day and they gave each member of our party umbrellas and origami cranes as we left. Recommend getting JR day pass, ride a rapid from Himeji to Akashi, hop on a local to Maiko to see the bridge.
