Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kansai / Kyoto Prefecture / Miyazu / 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.
日本三景の一つとして有名な景勝地で、国内外から大勢の観光客が訪れます。 とは言え、休日でも大混雑するほどの景勝地、というわけではありません。どちらかと言えば、天橋立ビューランド等の高台からの眺望を楽しむ観光客が圧倒的で、この景勝地は直に歩くと砂浜と松林が続くのみで、エンターテイメントの要素を期待することはお勧めしません。長い時間を積み重ねて作り上げられた場所を地学的に学びながら散策するには絶好の場... more

Translated as bridge of heaven (?) Very unique place to find beach(es) planted with pine tree. You can rent a bike here to cross the island for about 40 minutes or just walk around enjoying the nature and also the sound of eagle. Other entertainment also provided such as ferry and theme park.
It is one of Japan's three scenic views. The sandbar is located in Miyazu Bay in northern Kyoto Prefecture. Viewed from the mountains at either end of the bay, the Amanohashidate Sandbar (which roughly translates to "bridge in heaven") looks like a pathway between heaven and earth.
