Maiko Marine Promenade

The Maiko Marine Promenade is an observatory and series of walkways located under the Akashi Kaikyo bridge's platform, about 155 ft above the water. Accessed by elevator from the base of the bridge on the Kōbe side, the hallways offer views of the bridge's interior, the Akashi Strait and Ōsaka Bay. Not for the faint of heart, the plexiglass floor section of the promenade (pictured left) offers a view straight down to the ocean. Photograph on the right is a view of the bridge as seen through a sculpture from Maiko Park at its base.
