Amanohashidate, Miyazu

(4.2/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Made a day trip from Kyoto by coach tour( ¥5600, advance booking required on the web). Personally I think the coach tour is the least expensive and time-saving way to be there.(2 hours from Kyoto) My ...  more »
  • Atmosphere that may have the Dragon God or gods. Cold, so warm when you go with the best. Crotch voyeurism looks all the more mysterious. Station will become fashionable \ (^ ^) /

  • Interesting scenic area of kyoto, very nice for leaf viewing in autumn. You can probably hit up everything in the area in
  • One of the best views in all of Japan, this stretch of land separates ocean and sea. Truly a picturesque sight worthy of its reputation.
  • What a wonderfully scenic escape! If you can make the trip, I highly recommend it. Rent a bike and ride across the land bridge. Very peaceful :)
  • The best thing about Amanohashidate is that, unlike many tourism spots, it doesn't give the hustle and bustle vibe of many people coming and going. With the epic scenery, naturalistic and village like atmosphere, this place is great to chill and relax from human traffic. Walking along the sandbar while looking at the trees and ocean is very refreshing. You can acces Kasamatsu parkwith cable car for \170 yen for one trip, and \330 yen for round trip, and also find a souvenir shop and cafe. The popular spot on Kasamatsu is the "matanozoki". The limitation of this place is the minim of transportation access and schedule. I was late to catch one train and ended up waiting a long time for the next train and arrived at around 7 o'clock at Miyazu Bay, which was deserted. Luckily I found the entrance to the sandbar, which was just about to be closed, and reached at the Youth Hostel (3,000 yen/night) safely an soundly. The journey was absolutely worth it though.
  • A very local place. Tranquil and peaceful. Not a significant sightseeing place.
