Create an itinerary including Amanohashidate
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.

  • A very nice one-day trip from Kyoto. There are many options to sleep on site, but it is not strictly necessary: you can arrive at about 10am by train, visit the sights and leave by mid-afternoon...

  • I suppose this is a rather interesting feature, but to be honest the view wasn't that pretty or exciting - bit of a tourist trap

  • When you go here, you feel as if you've been transported back to a different time. Being the only Americans in sight, made us feel that we were truly in an authentic part of Japan.
  • An absolutely must visit when in Japan. I'd recommend you to go up to the 'top' using the chairlift - that is an experience in itself. For those who do not fancy heights, there is a monorail which can take you up/down - although, it does tend to get a little crowded. The views are fantastic and the scenery is unique - take as many photos as you can. Make sure to check the weather forecast before you go and make sure the sky is clear!
