We spent the morning here as our cruise ship (Sun Princess) had docked in Maizuru. The pleasant train journey (40mins) added to the day. We first visited the View Land (via the cable car) which gives a magnificent view of the avenue of pine trees. Fortunately it was a beautiful day so the view over the bays & the Stairway to Heaven was superb. We all had to do the customary view by putting your head between your legs and imagining the stairway. It really does look like a stairway! The separate bays look like scallops from the hill. We then went back down & walked partially across the avenue. It is a beautiful place and, no doubt, it would get very crowded on weekend & holidays. We perhaps should have hired a bike & ridden across but our time was limited. Another interesting feature is the swinging bridge which opens & shuts very frequently to allow shipping through the channel. There are also many gift shops & eateries at the entry to the walkway. One of those beautiful natural attractions that will always be remembered.
