Awaji Island Excursion

Awaji Island lies between and acts as a connection for the main island of Honshu and the island of Shikoku. The Akashi Kaikyo bridge spanning to Honshu is the largest suspension bridge in the world. Our excursion included the Nojima Fault (where originated the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake in 1995) and the Naruto Strait where whirlpools can be observed at high tide.
