Akashi Suspension Bridge and Maiko Park
Akashi Bridge is the longest suspension bridge in the world. The length is 4km and the main tower is 300m. The height is almost the same as the tallest building in Japan. An observatory deck is built on the bridge 47m above sea level. You can walk along the 150m promenade and look down the sea through the transparent floor. It’s so tensed. There is a building called Ijokaku Hall. It’s a three story octagonal building of Chinese style. There is Sun Wen Memorial Museum in the hall. The former Kinoshita family’s house built in 1941 is preserved as an early modern Japanese house. You can look around the house of the traditional Japanese architectural style.
