Amanohashidate is a sand bar with hundreds of large pine trees on it. It's a famous Japanese landmark, and the vicinity is dotted with business trying to take advantage of the amount of tourism it gets. Nevertheless, I went there during the low season and thought it was well worth it.

A wonderful place to spend a year on a working holiday two decades ago, that I have returned to a number of times. A lovely 3km long sandbar covered in pine trees. Views from hills at wither end of the sandbar. Temples, restaurants, a beach and more! Only a few hours form Kyoto City, Amanohashidate is located in Miyazu City, a small coastal city in Wakasa Bay.

Amanohashidate (or Heaven's Bridge) is one of Japan's three scenic views. From the train station, walk down the 3.3 km long sand bar. You can also rent bikes. On the other side, go to the top of the montain. There turn your back to the bay, bend over and look at the bay between your legs!

Unfortunately, JR Pass holders have to pay for part of the travel from Kyoto.
