One of the most beautiful and relaxing places I've ever been. The weather helped and we could see the "heavenly bridge" in all it's glory as the blue skies matched the Sea of Japan's blue waters. Lovely local crafts, wonderful fresh seafood, rental bikes to cycle across the narrow sandspit or just walk from side to side, taking in the... More

Despite was raining on that day. The trip was worthwhile. It was about 5 min walk from the hotel Seikoro Historical Museum where we stayed to the jetty and then transfer by a cable car to the hill top to look at the sand bar. And then we took about 45 min to trek up (go by bus 350 yen... More

I am glad that I visited this place, it's 2 hours from Kyoto via train. I bought the 1 day pass which covers the train rides between Fukuchiyama JR station and Amanohashidate, boat rides, rope way tickets, bike rentals and bus fare in Hashidate. I took the boat to the other side of the sand bar, went the observatory (via... More

This is the Nihonsankei and it's obviously named that for a reason. But only go for it unless you have all the time in Japan, or doing a slow relaxing trip visiting areas slowly. Don't mark it I'm your itinerary if you're only in Japan for two weeks or less It's quite far and costly if you're not on a... More

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!
