What to Expect

Welcome to my home town, Akashi-city! I will show you Akashi castle and Akashi Park. They remind us the history of Japan and now they are a place of rest and relaxation for all Akashi citizens. Also, please try the Sushi in Akashi city. Akashi bream is very famous in Japan; I am certain that you will be satisfied with that sushi.
If you want to eat more, I will take to a famous shop serving Akashi-yaki. It is a ball-shaped pancake with bits of octopus. It is also the nation-wide famous snack from Akashi. Can you imagine what it is? Please take up the challenge of trying it, and you may become addicted to Akashi-yaki, as my family and friends have.
