1.Welcome to Azur Maiko

Azur Maiko is a 800 meter long man-made oasis where a beach with white sand meets grassy gardens and small pine grove. This beautiful beach spreads out from East to West along the Japanese Inland Sea and overlooks Awaji Island and its famous connecting Akashi Kaikyo Bridge.

‘Azur Maiko’ was a name chosen by the public. ‘Azur’ is the French word for ‘Blue’ and ‘Maiko’ is the area’s name. It was named with the hope that Azur Maiko beach will be as beautiful as Cote d’Azur in the south of France. This park would be the site for relaxation, quiet social gathering and a nice dip in the sea on a hot summer’s day.

We are very proud that Department of Environment continually conducts water quality surveys and has awarded the water quality as best or second best every year. As such, you will often see fish swim around you when you are in the water.

Azur Maiko is a park with the feel of a seaside resort. It is a place for walking along the beach, having a picnic, fishing, exercising, free yoga, barbeques(date apply) and many more activities. As one of the most beautiful sunset viewing spots, it attracts many photographers, couples and holiday goers, even in the winter.
