Amano Hashidate, one of the most scenic spots of Japan


Amano Hashidate literally means a bridge to the heaven. The small land strip that divides the sea can be seen as a bridge when you see the bridge between your legs. It is recognized as the one of three scenic spots of Japan along with Matsushima in Miyagi Prefecture, Itsukushima in Hiroshima Prefecture. Among three Amano Hashidate is the hardest to access. It is in Kyoto Prefecture but in the north end facing the Japan Sea.

Once you reached there, enjoy walk on the beach or even swim in summer, also visit the Amano Hashidate View Land riding a cable car.

Is it worth going there? Yes! You may like to plan a visit together with neighboring spots like Crab dinner in winter or Ruin of Takeda Castle in summer.
