If you drive to Awaji Shima from Kansai, you must cross the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge (such a beautiful bridge!) and soon after you will come to the Awaji Highway Oasis, a rest stop for travelers. We rarely stop since although the views are spectacular, there are usually too many people. This time, however, we decided to stop on our way home since it was spring and the one side has a beautiful garden out the back. It did not disappoint and we wished we had more time to explore. Maybe next time.
