A day trip to Amanohashidate & Funaya from Kyoto, Osaka, Nara or Kobe

If you have visited Kyoto many times and want to experience something different outside Kyoto city enter, Amanohashidate is one of the places that we recommend.

It takes less than 2 hours drive from Kyoto or Osaka. You can enjoy the view of the ocean, beach, temples, sake brewery and small fishing village in Kyoto. For more information about Amanohashidate, please visit this link https://www.amano-hashidate.com


Amanohashidate (天橋立) is a pine covered sandbar that spans the mouth of Miyazu Bay in the scenic, coastal region of northern Kyoto Prefecture. Viewed from the mountains at either end of the bay, the Amanohashidate Sandbar (which roughly translates to “bridge in heaven”) looks like a pathway between heaven and earth. The scene has been admired for centuries and is ranked among Japan’s three most scenic views. (Source: https://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3990.html)


Ine (伊根) is a town located around the Ine Bay in northern Kyoto Prefecture, about 15 kilometers north of Amanohashidate. This working town has a long and rich history as a fishing village and is regarded as one of the most beautiful villages in Japan.

The unique aspect of Ine are its funaya. Literally meaning “boat houses”, these traditional waterfront buildings contain garages for boats on their first floors and residential space on the upper floors. Today they’re over 200 funaya remaining along the bay. Some of them now serve as guest houses where visitors can stay the night and experience the funaya first-hand (see external links for a list of lodgings).
