JR West station with a view
Maiko station, about 20 minutes west of Kobe, has a grand view of the Akashi Kaikyo Ohashi, the bridge to Awaji Island.
That bridge has the world's longest suspension central span that is 1-1/4 miles (6532 feet) long. It was planned to carry a rail line and the highway, but when construction started the railway portion was cancelled.
