Amanohashidate round trip e-ride tour

google
Amanohashidate has a beautiful view from the top, but a bicycle path is built along the sea like a mirror, and the scenery while running is very beautiful.<br><br>Amanohashidate, which has been worshiped as a mysterious sacred place of Japanese Shinto since ancient times, has a variety of stories from ancient times to Sengoku and modern times.<br><br>Many guides will give you a detailed guide to the highlights of Amanohashidate, where most people just stop at the top.<br><br>This tour uses the latest e-sports bike (electrically-assisted bicycle for sports using the same frame and parts as the road bike). You can experience a model that usually costs nearly 300,000 at a great discount. Please enjoy the addictive ride.<br><br>As an option, there is also a tour of the Tango Chirimen factory and a deep Amanohashidate experience where craftsmen explain Chirimen and Furoshiki in an elegant Japanese house that also serves as an exhibition hall, and you can take a break with tea and sweets.

This park is unique with two major Kofun period (about 250-538 A.D.) grand burial mounds from the 4th century; the Ebisu-yama Kofun and the Tsukuri-yama Kofun. Both of them are so-called “zenpou-kouen-fun” or “(old-style) keyhole shaped burial mound,” a very unique shape for burial mounds found only in Japan and in southernmost of Korean Peninsula. As the park is right on the mountain side along National Highway 176 in the Akeshi district of the town of Yosano, the access is very easy. It’s about 20-25 minutes from the Amanohashidate area to the south and about 35-40 minutes from the city centre of Fukuchiyama by car. In the complex are the interpretation centre, the burial mounds and an old farm house moved from the Kayaoku district of the town of Yosano. After the digging and research works were completed, the burial mounds were restored to the original condition with reproduced earthenware and they are visible to visitors. It is unfortunate that the park is right next to the two ugly-looking gas stations along the highway; examples of poor land zoning decision by the town office.
