Create an itinerary including Akashi Kaikyo Bridge
An astounding feat of engineering, Akashi Kaikyo Bridge holds the title of the longest suspension bridge in the world, spanning an incredible 3.9 km (2.4 mi). The product of 2 million workers and 10 years of work, the bridge was completed in 1998, using enough steel cable to circumnavigate the globe a mind-boggling seven times. On the Kobe side of the bridge, consider stopping by the Bridge Exhibition Center for extensive and well-presented information about the structure's design and construction. If you're feeling somewhat brave, take an elevator to the "Maiko Marine Promenade," affording views from 50 m (164 ft) up, below the main platform of the bridge. You can take a far more in-depth guided tour of the bridge if you're a real enthusiast, but bear in mind that this requires an advanced reservation.

  • May not be for everyone, if you fear heights may not be the tour to take. But if you have an interest in engineering and building may be of interest.

  • One of the longest bridge in Japan . Total length of about 3000 mts. This gigantic structure is open for tourists attraction. The place is quite windy here . With entry fee of around 200yen you can go inside the building which takes you under the bridge. There was a gift shop and a cafe available there and you can spend some quality time here. You'll get a 360 degree view of the area around you . Place is easy to access as it is next to a railway station.
  • It's THE WORLD'S LONGEST SUSPENSION BRIDGE! While you're here don't miss the bridge museum on the top, you'll get to go up just under the bridge and feel it even better.
