Go to this spotGoogle Transit

Amano-hashidate (Bridge to Heaven) is a pine-covered, narrow sandspit in the northern coastal region of Kyoto Prefecture. This 3.5km-long 'bridge' of 8000 pine trees spans north-south to divide Miyazu Bay, and is considered on of Japan's three great views. The east side has a white sandy beach and attract swimmers and strollers.

Viewing from the nearby hills, ancient people called this sandbank "the bridge to heaven". At the south end of the sandspit is a ropeway leading to the observatory atop the mountain. The sandbank is 20m to 170m wide and vehicles are not allowed to enter. Rent a bicycle at the either end of the sandbar.

Absolutely stunning and well worth the train ride from Kyoto to come here, just for the view. The chair lift was fun to ride and there are many places at the top where you can see different angles of the vista. A must-visit if you love natural scenery.

It's a beautiful place to visit. You can walk, rent a bike or travel by boat to go to the other side where there's a cable car and lift chairs that take you to a viewing point and you can see a beautiful scenery. If you walk make sure to get some water before, it's 3km long.

In the summer is really hot, so be prepared. You can swim after going to the viewing point. There's a little restaurant and bathrooms. There's also a coin locker area and showers.

Quite nice. The transportation here in the daytime is convenient, if you drive a car by yourself, it would be much better. If you like sea, sunshine and the blue sky, please come here to enjoy! In late May, it’s mildly warm and is quite suitable for walking along the beach. Our family members all like this beach very much! There are some Japanese restaurants, when you are hungry, choose any one of them should be fine. We chose a restaurant near the bridge which can be split into two parts.
