I went there in August, 2010. I wanted to see Nihonsankei (日本三景), hence, that was the main reason to visit this place. This place has got simply amazing view. You can reach the top by cable car or a chair lift. You'll see the wonderful scene of Amanohashidate sandbar with full of pine trees from the top. If you see... More

The signature view of the sand bar from atop the hill was great but there wasn't much else to rave about with this little seaside town. The walk on the sand bar was quite relaxing and the boat ride back offered a different perspective. All in all OK but not worth the lengthy side trip from Kyoto or Kinosaki.

Took the cable car up to see the sand bar. Amazing views. It is ranked as no 1 beautiful spot in japan. I have no doubts about it. Must go here while in kyoto/osaka area. Area also close to sake manufacturing units, so plan to go there as well.

I was there last year for the Autumn leave season. It's simple and beautiful. Nice food and a small town. Nothing eventful but great place to relax and recuperate from hectic city life. I like to onsen and traditional set meals. I spend 2 nights here and had a peaceful time.

This area has beautiful gardens and homes and numerous sites to see and experience. We visited while on a bus tour and would no doubt missed a number of them if we did it on our own.

Rent the bicycle! The cycling is very enjoyable even during June period when I visited. There is not many people and I don't recommend walking. The views are spectacular along the entire stretch. Great place if you're into sightseeing!

I have visited this region a few times. The view from atop the mountain nearest the temple is beautiful. I recommend hiring a bicycle to cross the sandbar and explore. There are lots of restaurants and tourist shops for souvenirs. The seafood in this area is fresh, delicious and well priced, try the crab if it's in season. The area... More

We went to the southern part of the sandbar and the views were beautiful. Not much to do at the top of the view point, but there is a small amusement park, but almost no visitors when we were there. The town at the foot of the view point however is quite nice and the temple as peaceful as they... More

We took a day trip here. We arrived at the train station, rented bikes, and made a pleasant day of it. Nothing wonderful, just a very nice day for being in Japan.
