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's easy to say that the bridge is a sandbar that connects the two sides of Dan's half island. The sand bar is filled with pine trees, and at the same time there is a sea bath, feeling that many Japanese family visitors will come here for a holiday, which is 愜.

  • You can head out here and rent a bike for the day. You get some beautiful views and relaxing day. Plenty of space to stop and have a picnic. Ride the chairs to the top of the hill for a great view, just be careful it's slippery up there. Highly recommend visiting here
  • I think it is nice to visit when sunny. when cloudy it was not too nice. so make sure u come when sunny. U can see from 3 observatory desk. i saw from the photo that i posted.

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.
