Amanohashidate or Heaven's Bridge

It is one of the "Three Views of Japan", alongside Matsushima Bay known for its exceptional beauty and culture. Surrounded by pine trees, Amanohashidate offers vast oceanic views with white sandy beaches that stretch so far off that it resembles a bridge leading to the skies. This gives it its name 'Heaven's Bridge'. For an aerial view, you can try the cable car at your expense and head to Mt. Monju from where it looks like a "Flying Dragon".

The temple of wisdom

Chionji Temple is commonly known as Bussharado, meaning "Hall of Buddha's Relics." One of the notable features of Chionji Temple is its Sanmon Gate, the largest in the Tango region of Kyoto Prefecture with an impressive structure. With upward roofs, it serves as the entrance to the temple grounds. The famous tradition here is that of omikuji, a fortune-telling fan-shaped paper tradition where the width of the fan symbolizes gradual improvement in one's fortunes.

Boathouses of Ine

Popularly known as 'funaya', these boathouses are built directly over the water, with a garage for boats on ground level. Take time to explore this area by foot or bicycle and soak up the coastline scenery.
