Amanohashidate, Miyazu

#1 of 26 in Things to do in Miyazu
Landmark Tourist Spot
In a country of pristine natural beauty, Amanohashidate is widely considered one of Japan's most scenic attractions. Covered with over 7,000 pine trees, this sandbar stretches across the mouth of Miyazu Bay and creates a natural bridge linking the north and south sections of the city. Experience the spectacular scenery on foot, by bicycle, or from surrounding observation decks. Near the southern end, a Buddhist temple serves as a sanctuary and yet another viewpoint for appreciating the landscape. A chairlift on the northern side provides easy access to a viewing platform and cafe. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Miyazu holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Amanohashidate and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • On the day was cloudy, so time was short. Sunny day you want to come again! I can travel with bicycles and Hill, pleasant view from there!

  • Spread through the pine tree-lined streets and blue sea, very clean sea and was impressed. Fan stopped at shrine of Fortune is very nice and helpful. Shopping streets and lively and good.

  • Amanohashidate is doing no more, thanks. And or funny in the atmosphere changes depending on the season, compare each go. By the way I like watching a little covered by snow in winter. It's wonderful summer day of blue sky.

Where to stay in Miyazu

The accommodations in Miyazu proper represent a varied and welcoming bunch, with some traditional ryokans and modern hotels clustering around Miyazu station. Some of the upmarket options offer onsite onsens, while budget-friendly ones do not. But a far greater number of accommodations lie along the bay, close to the Amanohashidate land bridge and the station of the same name. The pricier options enjoy views of the sandbar and onsen, while some more standard hotels offer fewer frills for lower prices.
