On the way to Tokushima, we stopped over at the foot of the Great Akashi Strait Bridge in Maiko, Kobe, and stayed for the night there to enjoy the view of the beautiful bridge. Although we chose the hotel just because it was still available (we made a reservation at the last minute) and the location was convenient (the highway bus for Tokushima departs from the bus stop close to the hotel), it turned out that the place was once the villa of Prince Arisugawa and quite historical. Here, you can enjoy the romantic view of the bridge and its history at the same time. For more information on the hotel and the neighboring area please see my other articles.

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
