  • Interesting, not sure if I would go again but we ended up there so we had a look around. City scape views. May not be of interest to everyone.  more »
  • In spring and autumn, you may not know if you can see the sunset over Akashi Bridge. I'm glad to see it from the 360-degree observation tower, such as fireworks display.
