Park

The Akashi Kaikyo National Government Park has two locations in Awaji Island and Kobe City. The concept of the Awaji District location is "an amusement park by the ocean." The park has three main zones: the observation zone on the green sloped land, the cultural exchange zone with beautiful flower fields and a playground, and the coastal zone by the ocean with an open atmosphere.
The most popular attraction is the beautiful flower fields. Thanks to its mild climate, you can enjoy beautiful flowers and trees every season.
Different areas of the park have different themes. The "Waterfall Terrace" with seven waterfalls, the "Rainbow of Earth" decorated with flowers, and the "Sky Terrace" with a panoramic view of Osaka Bay are all well worth seeing.

The playground with 130-meter long and 14-meter tall equipment, a maze-like jungle gym, and a large lawn area is fun for both kids and adults.
There are many options for food as well. You can enjoy a picnic in nature, go to "Restaurant Hanayashiki" where you can have dishes made with ingredients from Awaji, or use the barbecue facility. (Reservations are required to use barbecue facility)
At the kiosk, they sell a variety of Awaji Island souvenirs. You will see Awaji Island onion soup made of locally produced onions, dressing, local beer, and more.

    冬天來的時候風很大,也沒有什麼遊客,冷冷清清,夏天來應該會很棒。
