The Awaji Service Area is located on Awaji Island, right at the south end of Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge. The Service Area is a gateway to Shikoku from Honshu, the largest main island in Japan, through Kobe-Awaji-Naruto Expressway. At the Service Area, you can make a U-turn from even both directions, and also you can get off the expressway to national highways.

The Awaji Service Area is called "Hill with a view of the Bridge", because you can see and enjoy the magnificent wide view of Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge very closely. The Service Area, therefore, makes you very relaxed and comfort by supplying rest space.
