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.

  • I went to Japan Sankei Amanohashidate. I wanted to go far from the old saw in the textbook. By car from Osaka 2-I went in 3 hours. Ropeway to climb and there is-no-hashidate panoramic views. When I visited was not tourists many up there. Are encouraged to relax and enjoy.

  • I went because it had not yet made in Japan one. Went to see the panoramic view, walking the sandy beaches. National holidays is not tourist season? Of what was available. Go by ropeway or lift to the top of the mountain, but buses only aerial tramway because of bad weather on the day. It was because I wanted to take a lift. Famous crotch peeping is a place of welcoming so good. Bad weather could view appeared clean. However, the number of tourist boats, at least too embarrassed, so also would go hours to have the go or stay.

  • 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 :)
  • There are very little people so it's a very tranquil place to walk around. But it's quite pricey to travel here from Kyoto. We took the JR train from Kyoto station to Fukuchiyama station (about 2500 yen) then bought the foreigner 1-day pass (1600 yen) for Amanohasidate from Fukuchiyama station. The pass allows us to take the tango railway for free from Fukuchiyama to Amanohashidate station and includes bicycle rental, chairlift and boat ride. I enjoyed cycling along the sandbar. It will be a good day trip from Kyoto if you have an extra day to spare.
  • Top three must seen scenery in Japan. Better go there when nice weather
  • Very quite and impressive! A must-visit if in the area...
  • Really interesting attraction, purchase the day pass at local train station, bike across and take the boat back, make sure to ride the chair lift up and down
