Awaji

Lookouts · Parks · Historic Sites
Most trips to Awaji remain fairly brief stop-offs on the expressway between Honshu and Shikoku. However, the local government has been attempting to drum up tourism in Awaji, setting up initiatives like low-cost bike rentals, designed to allow people to see the charms of the city and the eponymous island. Those who do stay longer will find a set of pleasant parks and agricultural areas, as well as monuments and sites related to the Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995: located at the epicenter of the natural disaster, the island lost over 6,000 people. Our Japan road trip website allows you to schedule your trip to Awaji, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

Where to stay in Awaji

International visitors to Awaji tend not to stay in the town itself, but prefer instead to look around the coast of the island. A decent number of hotels boasting sea views, pools, and onsite restaurants lie along Awaji Island's perimeter; the most popular places to stay are the traditional ryokans, clustered around the hot springs.
