Amanohashidate is an easy day trip from Kyoto (or you can spend the night if you prefer). There are four express trains a day from Kyoto station running in each direction. So one could take the first train in the morning arrive two hours later...More

Located on the south-western side on Miyazu Bay. It is a very quiet and peaceful part of Kyoto Prefecture in winter. Perfect and easy 45-min walk along the peninsular's sand bar. Alternatively you can take an excursion on a speed boat around the bay.

The sandbar is delightful either for a 20 min bicycle ride (which we opted) or a 45-min? leisurely stroll if you have the time. We would recommend the bicycle-ferry combo from the ferry company. Ride from Amanohashidate to Miyazu side and take the ferry on...More

The view was nice. If time permits, it is also good to walk on the sand bar (45 minutes one-way). It was a peaceful and relaxing walk. Looking at the transport costs, I thought it was better to visit Amanohashidate en route to somewhere else.

It's a nice place to visit, given it's one of the three most scenic spots in Japan (ref: the other two are Matsushima and Miyajima). It's the by the seaside and you can enjoy the less-crowded part of Kyoto. However, there is no night life...More

If you're the type that wants to visit as many tourist attractions as you can on a trip, this place might not be for you as the train ride from Kyoto takes 2 hours one-way. However, if you love train rides and just want to...More

Hi! I just googled Kyoto Station to Amanohashidate Station and see a train for 8:36 a.m. on the JR line. It might vary a little, and there are bus options too. Regardless of which you take, the bus will bring you to... More
