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.

This was an enjoyable side trip after misreading tourist information leading me to believe my Ryokan was only 1.5km from the railway station in Kyoto, which was a shame as I had limited time and a longer stay would have been very enjoyable. A full day visit to Amanohashidate was enough to see the major sights but a longer stay... More

We took the gondola to the viewing terrace on top. There was an extension that was transparent so you can actually stand and see the bottom as well. The view was breathtaking and it was very windy. Only sad thing was that it rained while we were there :( Still, it's worth a visit!

We drove about 3 hours from Kyoto and it was worth the effort and time. Rated as 3 top scenic views in Japan. Take the coastal road from Obama to Amanohashidate. Simply breathtaking.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Amanohashidate, a full day is enough time to see the major sights - even if you are walking! It was a lovely 35min walk across Amonhashidate, although lots of tourists on bikes but there were still times where I had the path all to myself. Took the chair lift up to the view park... More

we travelled there as we had heard it was a wonderful view...it is a beautiful setting but a little spoilt by the concrete showers built like trees, the warship anchored in the bay,the tacky vending, machines with animated figures,and couldnt quite get the idea of having to look through your legs upside down to see the view at its best.We...
