A gate to “Akashi Kaikyo Bridge,” the world’s longest suspension bridge.
Maiko Park opened in 1900 as the first prefectural park in Hyogo Prefecture. This park also serves as a gate for Akashi Kaikyo Bridge or “Pearl Bridge,” the world’s longest suspension bridge, attracting many tourists from Japan and abroad.
You can enjoy the view of the bridge and Akashi Strait from the Maiko Marine Promenade, located in the middle of the bridge girder about 50 meters above the sea. At the observatory café-restaurant that provides dishes made of Akashi’s local produce, you can enjoy a relaxing mealtime while looking out over the Akashi Strait.
There are many other tourist spots in the park, such as the “Former Residence of the Kinoshita Family” and the “Former Residence of Sanji Muto,” both registered as Tangible Cultural Properties of Japan. You can also find many historically valuable buildings. One of them is the “Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall (Ijokaku style pavilion)” symbolized by a three-story octagonal hall, designated as an Important Tangible Cultural Property of Japan.
