Kansai: Akashi Bridge and Maiko Beach

We randomly came across a sign for an observatory deck on Akashi bridge the other day.

It’s the longest suspension bridge in the world!!

It was only ¥250 each so we decided to go!

There is a 45 meter drop to the sea.

Maiko beach to the left.

We timed our trip just right as when we were leaving a whole bus load of tourists were arriving! We only stayed 25min but it was enough and it was fun!

After that we took a short walk to Maiko beach to relax and dip our feet!
