We went to this side of the Amanohashidate but not the Viewland since the entrance fee for the cable car is included in the one-day pass. The chair lift was suspended on the day of visit. Up there you can view the sand bridge upside-down, to experience why the Japanese call it Amanohashidate, "a bridge standing on the sky" -... More

To view Amanohashidate sandbar in a different formation (from a shape of flying dragon to a shape of number 1.), you must cross the bay by boat or walking/biking through the sandbar park and then take cable cars or chairlifts up to Kasamatsu Park. From the Kasamatsu Park view terrace, you see the sandbar in a shape of number 1.... More

The view at the hill top is fantastic. The car park fee at the foot of the hill is rather expensive at around 750 yen.

Undoubtedly, the best place to view all of Amanohashidate - the natural sandbar. We went on a sunny Sunday afternoon and caught the chairlift up (a wee bit scary) and the cable car back down (enjoying both styles ... because the chairlift closed at 4 p.m.) We didn't have to wait at all - it wasn't that crowded. The view... More

Lot's of open space and green area just next to the bay, this was along our round trip from Amanohashidate through Miyazu and certainly a chance finding this to say the least, a very favorable chance at that.

This is probably the most well-known viewpoint for Amanohashidate. From the bottom of the hill, there is a cable car or a chair lift service for JPY660 per person (roundtrip). There used to be a hiking route along the cable car and chair lift, but I wasn’t able to confirm its existence today. When you are in the Amanohashidate region,... More

One of the spots we visited while on a bus tour from our cruise stop in Maizuru. This area was very busy with people visiting the nearby temple and shopping area. The island and its vegetation was really something to see. Also if visiting give yourself time for water sports as there are plenty of them to enjoy.

After going to both sides to look over Amanohashidate, I think the view is better from the other side if you had to choose one. Although this is still nice, it's less touristy which also means there's not as much to see or do
