This park near Akashi Kaikyo Bridge is the best spot to view the bridge. In the park there is also a museum about Sun Wen, and along the seaside you can enjoy a very pleasant walking. It is suitable to bring children too. Unfortunately it was rainy on the day I visited. So, I would like to return on a sunny day again.

The bridge, the sunset, the park, and the straight made it a perfect combination for the end of my second day in Kansai. Even though the ocean wind was killing my ears.

I have been at Maiko Park because I was looking for a nice beach, which was in easy reach from Osaka city.
Since most of the Osaka bay is industrially used it did not want to go bathing there.
Maiko and Suma are two beaches behind Kobe in Hyogo prefecture.
From the two, I went to Maiko because of its vicinity to Akashi Kaikyō bridge.
This is a huge suspension bridge connecting Honshu and Awaji island.
When in water, you can see the bridge, Awajishima and ships passing by.
The water is very clear, so it is a perfect spot to enjoy the scenery and refreshing water.
You better bring an umbrella because there is no shady spot on the beach.

After spending many days in the hectic cities and having a fee day we decided to head to Maiko Park and in particular to visit the Akashi Kakyo Bridge.
Just over a 45 minute train journey from Osaka to Maiko station with nice views along the trip.
To smell the fresh sea air was a lovely change from the city life.
Only 250 yen to go up to the observation deck with stunning views all round and grab a bite to eat or just a coffee.
The highlight is the glass floor just watching the different reactions of people had me in tears I could have sat there for hours but there wasn't many people visiting on this day.
Walk along the water front and see the locals swimming with the lifeguards keeping a keen eye out for them p. s. I think there was more lifeguards than swimmers.
Watching the traffic and large container ships going under the bridge was a great way to relax for a few hours.

Good place to enjoy a sunny day. Quiet and peaceful. You can observe fishermen at work. You can visit Akashi kaikyo exhibtiion center, or join a tour (if you book it ahead of time)

I think my biggest surprise after getting off at Maiko Station, walking to Akashi Kaikyo bridge, and having to use the restroom, is walking over the hill and seeing all the people gathering for the flea market. I arrived around 10am, and vendors were still arriving. The flea market is geared more towards children with a lot of toys and kid's clothes. But there were a lot of other options from handmade items, jewelry, and household items.

The time it takes to get here from Osaka is about the same as going to Nara or Kyoto, 45 minutes to an hour. Just catch the limited express, which has far less stops, and make a transfer in Kobe.

Outside of the flea market, which was a huge draw for me, the park is quiet and the views are beautiful. This area isn't packed full of tourists, which was nice. It was mainly older people and families, probably getting away from the city center.

All-in-all the area itself provides many relaxing options from sight-seeing, the Akashi Kaikyo bridge, and quiet. Probably a good stop during your trip when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of crowds.

Located closer to the well-known Akashi bridge. This is a well-maintained park with an amazing view. You can enjoy the pleasure of the Maiko beach and the sunset during evenings. A perfect location to spend some peaceful time.

One word that I can say about this Place, "Wow". In here we can do some sports, fishing, photography, cycle, and others. We can see beautiful and great bridge - Akashi bridge - from Maiko Park. You can see the little sunset from here. Beautiful place :)

The bridge hangs over this park. Why was this park built, just to gobble up more budget? Devastating!
