  • A Trip To Amanohashidate

Just 35 minutes from Fukuchiyama by direct train is Amanohashidate, and it is well worth the detour!

Listed as one of Japan’s three most scenic views, Amanohashidate is a pine-covered sandbar spanning the mouth of Miyazu Bay.

Viewed from the mountains at either end of the bay, it looks like a pathway between heaven and earth, which is the literal meaning of its name.

158 km - 2H28 - Kyoto station

Kyoto may have lost its status as a national capital and imperial home in 1868, at the time of the Meiji restoration but nobody could dispute its title of modern day tourist capital; a heaving capital most of the time as well.
