In the far north of Kyoto Prefecture on the Sea of Japan coast, Amanohashidate is well-known as one of the ‘Three Most Famous Views in Japan’. A natural land bridge of white sands and green pine trees, according to legend it was created as a path to the heavens by the deity Izanagi-no-mikoto. The sandbar stretches for 3.6 kilometers and visitors can enjoy walking or cycling from one end to the other.

Amanohashidate is best viewed from one of the hilltop parks, and tradition dictates that this is done by facing away, bending over and gazing at it upside down through your legs!
