I have never heard of a much more celebrated sandbar than Amanohashidate. I didn’t know what all the fuss was all about, but decided to check it out with some friends for a road trip. It was actually very nice. It wasn’t crowded at all....More

This location is one of the great tourist attraction and there is no need for any further introduction. Other than scenery one should not miss the feeding of the birds. On sunny days one should take the 30 mins ferry tour, though nothing more can...More

We stayed at a Ryokan for three nights and did some sight seeing and relaxing around Amanoshidate before heading back to Tokyo. Such a beautiful peaceful place. We made alot of trips up and down the sand bar experiencing all the restaurants in the area

This is a great place for pictures and relaxation while with the family or on your own. I visited while on a cruise with my two children and wife. Enjoy1

Take the fenicular railway, if you get the chance. The views are spectacular from the top. It's one of the three most iconic views in Japan. Well worth a visit.
