In the beginning... there was Awaji

Awaji island (Awaji-shima) in Japan's Inland Sea is linked to Honshu island via Akashi Kaikyo Ohashi Bridge, and to Shikoku island via the Naruto Ohashi Bridge. Referenced in ancient Japanese lore, its 393km² area contains all the country has to offer: hot springs, temples and shrines, impressive landscapes, sandy beaches, artistic traditions and culinary delights.
