First visit to Awaji for Tulips after Hanami in Kyoto. Drove across the 4km Akashi Kaikyo bridge to Awaji.
AKASHI KAIKYO NATIONAL GOVERNMENT PARK (淡路島国営明石海峡公園)
While tulip was the main theme, sakura and other Spring flowers were nicely planted and arranged in the park. We spent around 5 hours, including a brief lunch.
Onaruto Bridge and whirlpools
drove to the southern tip of Awaji where the Onaruto bridge connects Awaji to Tokushima in Shikoku.
