I've visited this site twice in the last year. The first time I went by motor bike and although it was a very nice spot, I regretted not going up the mountain for the view point. I went back in January by car and took the cable car up this time. The chill breeze scared off most people, but I... More

The direct Hashidate express train from Kyoto takes 2 hours through lovely green mountain scenery. Once in the small town take a chair lift up to the View Land on the South Shore (1 hour), grab some lunch in the town on the South shore where there are more options than on the Northern end, then hire a bike to...

I travelled almost 3 hours from Osaka to Amanohashidate. The long travelling time has tired me out. I've to reach Fukuchiyama first and then reach Miyazu and then Amanohashidate. As I don't have a JR pass, I've to pay for the entire transport from Osaka to Fukuchiyama. There is no other way to get to Fukuchiyama except to travel by... More

Amanohashidate, known as The Bridge to Heaven, 天橋立, is approx. 2 hrs. by Rapid train from Kyoto, or 2.5 hrs.from Shin-Osaka. It is one of the three most picturesque coastal scenic parks in Japan. The others two are Miyajima in Hiroshima Prefecture and Matsushima in Miyagi Prefecture. I took a day trip from Kyoto during 6 days visit in October.... More

Don't miss the tourist train from Fukuchiyama to Amanohashidate. Cute, comfortable and it even stops at sights along the way. It connects with the first train of the day from Osaka to Fukuchiyama. Wooded scenery all around, we enjoyed our day from the moment we left Fukuchiyama. Until then autumn fog had obscured our view of the mountain scenery but... More

We were a bit wary about travelling for 2 hours from Osaka for Amanohashidate. But the journey was definitely worth it when we saw what awaited us. The chair lift was great fun. The view was amazing. The surrounding sea, verdant hills and the snaking chain of pine trees was a sight to behold. The cycle ride is a must... More

What a perfect spot for relaxing and chilling. There's bike for rent but I only walked to enjoy the view and ended up sitting on a log nearby the sea. Cool breeze and fresh air. I also spot some fish jumping up from the sea. Not much people even it's holiday.

We got to Amanohashidate on Sunday but, we decided to wait until Monday to go across the sandbar - as we know the weekends can be crowded - therefore a bit too noisy for such a special place. We were on the Kasamatsu Park side and had bought a ticket the day before to go up and down Kasamatsu Park... More

Came here on the day our cruise ship docked in Maizuru. Son and I took the 50-minute walk through the shaded sandbar on a hot summer afternoon after we got off the chair lift. It was very nice with the tall pine trees on both sides of the walk. Son walked down to the beach area and he said it... More

Loved Amanohashidate. We walked to other side and then walked up to top to the Konamatsu park and the temple. You can take a tram and a bus up, but we felt energetic and hiked the 1.8 km. Once to top it was all worth it.
