November 18, 2022
Amanohashidate, mentioned in Japanese mythology, is said to be one of the three most scenic spots in Japan. This long, narrow sandbar, resembling a dragon in shape, is about 3.6 km long and 20 to 170 m wide, and is covered with about 5,000 pine trees. This place is famous in Japanese mythology, where it is described as a bridge connecting heaven and earth. The area is always crowded with tourists who come to see the mysterious and spectacular view created by nature. The observatory on a small hill near Amanohashidate has a Ferris wheel and other amusement attractions that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
