Amanohashidate, Miyazu

4.2
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 Amanohashidate and beyond, use our Miyazu trip builder to get the most from your Miyazu vacation.

  • It took about 1.5 hours car hire from Kyoto. Even dining than I thought, everyone ate [Chikuwa] while walking. You can choose either lift and ropeway to Amanohashidate standing viewland. Because the weather is good, seemed nice lift. You can see the spectacular, I was impressed. Crotch is a peep! From there and move a bit to the boathouses in INE". Was eat was feeding the seagulls all in a boat is fun (^ ^) feeding could not see much to boat docks, too crazy to do that, but the building is a must-see (^. ^)

  • We visited at the end of October, but under the influence of Typhoon weather was unfortunately rain. At the ticket office to the staff "may can't look too much?? "And the rain came but I was pressed to say in the Monorail to viewland Observatory. Amanohashidate mid Misty Rain is to be honest did not expect too much, but low clouds and thinking "Wow?! "And so voice is ghostly landscape before their eyes. Overwhelmed by unexpected views like SUMI-e painting was in the real world. It is recommended that, even when it rains as well as sunny days please go to the Observatory.

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.
