Maiko Marine Promenade

Observation Tower
An excursion style promenade installed on the girders of the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in a corner of Maiko Park a five-minute walk from Maiko Station on the JR San'yo Main Line and Sanyo Electric Railway Maiko-koen Station. The 317-meter long promenade is positioned 47 meters above the surface of the ocean below. The walkway is modeled after an old-fashioned log bridge and features glass window floors on either side of a log, enabling visitors can enjoy a thrilling aerial walk high above the ocean in perfect safety. Information on the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge is presented in the first-floor entranceway area. A camera system in the eighth-floor observation lounge enables visitors to experience what the view is like at the top of the one of the 300-meter-tall bridge's towers.
