The bridge also has a beautiful waterside park that the locals seem to enjoy. It reminded us of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, except for the color. We found you can pay a small fee to go up to an observation area in...More

It’s a beautiful, graceful and also the world’s longest suspension bridge. The lovely paint color complements the sea and sky. I am very impressed with its engineering and functionality as well as its appearance. Awaji Island is also very nice.

After getting here from Osaka, I didn't expect the bridge to be so huge. It's also a quiet peaceful area. Also, you can stay in the coolness of the shade of the bridge, or get some sun next to it, which is nice. From Osaka,...More

298m high, the views were amazing. At the time of completion it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Great tour easy walk but it's about 2.5km of level walking. No climbing. Don't miss this attraction.

We probably should have researched this bridge a bit more before heading here as we initially wanted to walk across and back. When we got there we quickly discovered you cannot walk it at all as there are not any walk-ways and the only way...More

We took a short JR train trip from Kobe to Maiko city. You can take a long walk along the beach and watch the large ships go by. It is very relaxing visit.
