Amanohashidate round trip e-ride tour

Amanohashidate has a beautiful view from the top, but a bicycle path is built along the sea like a mirror, and the scenery while running is very beautiful.<br><br>Amanohashidate, which has been worshiped as a mysterious sacred place of Japanese Shinto since ancient times, has a variety of stories from ancient times to Sengoku and modern times.<br><br>Many guides will give you a detailed guide to the highlights of Amanohashidate, where most people just stop at the top.<br><br>This tour uses the latest e-sports bike (electrically-assisted bicycle for sports using the same frame and parts as the road bike). You can experience a model that usually costs nearly 300,000 at a great discount. Please enjoy the addictive ride.<br><br>As an option, there is also a tour of the Tango Chirimen factory and a deep Amanohashidate experience where craftsmen explain Chirimen and Furoshiki in an elegant Japanese house that also serves as an exhibition hall, and you can take a break with tea and sweets.

Most tourists visit two viewpoints to enjoy Amanohashidate in northern Kyoto prefecture. They are at the both ends of Amanohashidate; Kasamatsu Park and Amanohashidate View Land near JR Amanohashidate Station. The Oouchi Touge (Pass) is away to the west in the Iwataki district of the town of Yosano. This was an ancient short-cut route from Miyazu and Iwataki region to the Omiya and Mineyama region. Since there is no public transit to this mountain pass, one must have a car to get here. It would take about 20 minutes from the centre of the Iwataki region. “Ichijikan” Park means the park where Amanohashidate looks like the Chinese character ‘one’ or a simple short horizontal bar. Amanohashidate is a two-mile-long sand bar with thousands of pine trees and it looks like the Chinese character ‘one’ from the Oouchi Pass. The park has a shrine, a very nice viewing terrace, restrooms (closed from December 1 to the end of March) and a free parking lot. For those who want to enjoy camping, it has some cottages and camp spots for the summer months. It is also noteworthy to mention that the viewpoint also gives you a clear view of Oeyama Nickel Refinery below. This was once the site in Japan to produce ferro-nickel for war effort in the 1930’ and 1940’s from nickel ore mined in Mt. Oeyama with hundreds of prisoners of war from the Allied Forces and Chinese labourers alongside some Japanese workers. From the park, the former POW campsite is also visible near the refinery.
