Amanohashidate, Miyazu

(440+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Amanohashidate draws you in with the sandy land bridge across Miyazu Bay. It was a bridge to heaven that the gods once ascended and many poems were written about. I enjoyed exploring its quiet beauty ...  more »
  • The view of Amanohashidate from the hill top is a gorgeous spectacle of nature and walking through it on the pathway, well-maintained and safe, is wonderful.  more »

  • This is the best! Most beautiful place I've been in Japan (till now).
  • Interesting scenic area of kyoto, very nice for leaf viewing in autumn. You can probably hit up everything in the area in
  • Beautiful panaromatic views to watch this from the top. Possibility to swim in the sea or the Pacific ocean.
  • 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 :)
