Light-Up of Akashi Strait Bridge

Illumination of the world's longest suspension bridge

This is the last story of my Hyogo Prefectural Maiko Park Series.

I visited this park on October 19th, 2014. After I joined the tour to climb to the top of the Great Akashi Strait Bridge, I wrote in one of the stories that I had two more objectives I wanted to achieve. One was to capture the sunset of Akashi, and the other was to see this illuminated bridge.

The illumination goes just after the sunset till 11 P.M. on weekdays, and till midnight on weekends and holidays. There are various patterns of illumination, and the gorgeous view of the illuminated bridge lit up by colorful LED lights will delight your eyes.

Although I left before midnight, I enjoyed my relaxing holiday in the Hygo Prefectural Maiko Park.

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.
