Somewhere near West-Kobe or Akashi area

I would like to have a nice meal out when I go sightseeing in West-Kobe and Akashi (Akashi Channel Big Bridge)with my friend for a night. We plan to use trains and busses. Please suggest somewhere for sightseeing and location.

reasonable price / good scenery

The charge is reasonable. You can see the sea from your room. The transport is convenient. The view from the room on the sea-side on the upper floor is fantastic. It is close to Akashi. If you drive, the Seishin area is not far. Maiko has the Akashi Big Bridge and the Kaihin Park to enjoy sightseeing.

clear across the Akashi Channel Big Bridge

The nearest station is JR Maiko station. There is a shuttle-bus service from the station. It is in a walking distance though. At the station, there are a few food shops. Before you head for the hotel, I suggest that you should buy some foods at a convenience-store. You can see the Akashi Channel Big Bridge and the night view from your room. The charge is cheap for the size of a room. You can go to Akashi or Kobe using the JR. In Akashi, why don’t you try Akashi-yaki?

at the foot of the Akashi Channel Big Bridge

The hotel is located between Motomachi and Akashi, and it is a quiet and scenic area. The situation that the Akashi Channel Big Bridge is at the foot of the hotel is wonderful. The hotel site is relatively large and there is no tall building in the surroundings, so rooms on any-side will be OK, I think, but the best one is on the sea-side. It is quite often used as a wedding venue, so the restaurant is crowded. From Akashi to Seishin Chuo, local buses are operating, but from here, Kosoku-maiko to Gakuen-mae, you can use the Highway-bus. Of course, you ca get to Awaji Island, easily.

the resort hotel where you can see the splendid scenery

It’s a 7-minute-walk from the Maiko station. It is located along the Maiko sea and the Akashi Channel Big Bridge is at the front. The beautiful sea scenery is waiting for you. Especially the sunset is an indescribably memorable scene. The window is a large one from the floor level, so you can see the scenery in a wide screen. The Italian meal is exquisite. It is the hotel where I would want to stay even only for seeing the scenery.

All the rooms have an ocean-view, commanding the Akashi Channel Big Bridge.

It’s a 7-minute-walk from the JR Maiko station. All the rooms have an ocean-view, commanding the Akashi Channel Big Bridge. In the surroundings, there is the glass-walled Akashi Channel Big Bridge to walk on, the beautiful beach and the Sonbun Memorial Hall. The long-established restaurant for more than 100 years offers the genuine taste of Milan. They cook all dishes from the starter to the main, following the recipe of the Milan Head Restaurant. You can enjoy their taste and the atmosphere in the restaurant with the magnificent ocean view.

It’s in a walking distance from the Akashi station.

If you stroll around the Uo-no-tana shopping street in Akashi, you can see a lot of fish and you can taste Akashi-yaki (Takoyaki with soup). If you go to the Tarumi station, using the JR, you can see the festival at the Watatsumi(Kai) Shrine. (19th-21st July).

recommendation

My recommendation is the Akashi Castle Hotel. It’s a 5-minute-walk from the Akashi station. The hotel is convenient for visiting Kobe or the Himeji area. Uo-no-tana shopping street is close. Strolling around in the neighbourhood is interesting. It is a quality hotel for the charge.

This is a fashionable hotel.

There is no recommended hotel in Nishi-kobe and the Akashi area. Do you like a cheap hotel? Or do you like a stylish hotel? There are nice hotels in Maiko at the foot of the Akashi Big Bridge. Especially Setre along the seaside is full of fashionable atmosphere, it is expensive though. It is just right for a couple to stay. It is 2 stops to the Akashi station. If you drive in the Akashi direction, please drop in at “Kimuraya” at the traffic-lights after driving straight on along the seaside through Akashi Ginza from the JR Akashi station. You can have the best Oden and Akashi-yaki.
