Amanohashidate, Miyazu
(4.2/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • If you go on a sunny day I was surprised in a very beautiful landscape. Japan one of very, very pleasant ride bicycles to look from the top of. While occasionally enjoying a variety in deep areas of the history and thought.

  • And so with our elderly people. Crotch up with cables on the voyeuristic action will feel there is a basket from Ise Shrine just off the cable isn't particularly special but worth watching (the photo ban is)

  • 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
