Ako Seaside Park (赤穂海浜公園)
This expansive park is approximately ten minutes by car from the Sanyo Expressway's Ako Interchange. Built on a large former saltpan in 1987, it gives a glimpse into Ako's history. It has lots of entertaining spots for the whole family, including a boat and canoe launch, the Wanpaku Playground with a shipwreck-shaped playscape and obstacle courses, and the Wakuwaku Fun Park with rides like a large Ferris wheel. There's lots of greenery, so it's a great place for a stroll while taking in the birdlife and seasonal flowers. It has a car camping ground too, so you can enjoy the beautiful environment at your leisure.

Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
