Amanohashidate, sometimes called "The Bridge to Heaven" is a 3.6 kilometer sand bridge formed over thousands of years and is now a beloved landmark in northern Kyoto prefecture on the coast of the Sea of Japan. It's been crowned one of the three most beautiful spots in Japan. To behold the natural beauty best, we recommend you rise to a peak on either side by lift or cable car. Traveling across the nature park's land bridge is a journey you will not forget with the carefully attended to pine forest and fine sand beaches. If you'd prefer a sea-side view, there are ferries and charter boats to show you the sights from the ocean.
Nature is the premier attraction but there is also deep culture and rich history to experience. There are several temples, shrines, and even natural hot springs adjacent to Amanohashidate and mountain top viewing areas.
Amanohashidate is also a place to have a good time! In the summer the beaches are great for swimming, beach sports, and family outings. There are various festivals held all year round, including the re-enactment of the folklore surrounding the creation of the mysterious sand bar in the summer dragon dance festival and a fireworks festival in the winter.
