The park borders one of the longest suspension bridges in Japan as it crosses to Awaji Island. The park is easily accessible from the train station. Being on the edge of the water it lends itself to great picnics and family gatherings.

I was in Japan last 2 weeks and we went to see the park during Golden Week. It was really nice because the park is really nice and plus there was a Food Festival for the Golden Week, with lots of food and games. Plus inside the park there is a Baseball stadium and there was a match that you can watch for free and plus you have the ruins of the castle to see. Very good experience

One of two original Yagura at Akashi Castle, Hitsujisaru Yagura (the other is Tatsumi Yagura). Considered important cultural property, these Yagura and connecting wall date to 1617. The main keep of Akashi-jou was tore down by the Meiji authorities in 1874, but the three layered castle compound, now a park, is otherwise fairly well preserved, with moats and walls, yagura and a cleared honmaru. The Yagura can be entered for free on weekends when they are opened by volunteers. They contain small exhibits and importantly offer an opportunity to experience an originally constructed sentry tower from within. Looking out through the small windows onto the grounds below gave me a chill as I imagined a scene some 400 years ago. There is also a wooden platform which allows one to see clearly over the walls across the park. The view is now dominated by Akashi City but in the Edo Period would've afforded clear views of the Akashi Straight, an important shipping route now spanned by Japan's longest suspension bridge. Akashi is a place dear to my heart, I lived there for a year. If I ever should become eccentrically wealthy, I should like to donate to a rebuilding of the main keep. The yagura are the first thing one sees getting off onto the platform at Akashi train station, but an otherwise flawless shot of both the Yagura is obscured by the overheard cables of the track.

Walked over to the park to have my lunch. Very well kept with a convenience store inside! The castle overlooks the park, very grand. Did not have the time to visit the castle but the park has the usual facilities and is very kids friendly with a playground and many benches scattered among the paths
