Kobe, Hyogo and Miki, are nearby suburbs which are also worth touring.
Akashi has a number of museums and theaters nearby that allow visitors to really get a feel for the area. To catch home-grown and touring acts, pick up some tickets to the Kobe Culture Hall, one of the region’s best-loved live concert venues.
Sports fans vacationing in Akashi should head to nearby Skymark Stadium to see the Orix Buffaloes playing visiting rivals. On game days the stadium becomes a sea of navy, gold and white, as crowds come together to cheer on their home-grown heroes.
To make sure you get the most out of this fascinating part of the world, think about making a reservation close by in one of the area’s hotel or serviced apartment options. Check out the rooms, rates and amenities at the Kobe Meriken Park Oriental Hotel, the Hotel Crown Palais Kobe, or the Hotel Okura Kobe.
