Afterward, continue to Akashi Kaikyo Bridge—the longest suspension bridge in the world. Walk along Maiko Marine Promenade, a passageway underneath the bridge's roadway on the Kobe side. Experience an in-depth introduction to these Japanese treasures as travel with your expert guide on foot and by train.
