    Kyoto Miyadushi Monju
    This is an amusement park at the summit of Mt. Monju, Miyazu City, Kyoto Prefecture with a viewing platform from which one can see Amanohashidate. Along with attractions including go karts, merry go rounds and a Ferris wheel, the view from the viewing platform restaurant is stunning. There are seven “fork peepholes” that allow one to look between the forks of Amanohashidate, and the Hiryukan through which one can see what looks like a dragon ascending to heaven. There are monorail and lift services to and from the foot of the mountain.

    I went to here with friends . It’s so beautiful place and wonderful view . I really loved it . If you visit japan try to visit Kyoto Amanohashidate Viewland I really recommend this place .

    Kyoto Maidurushi Shimofukui 905
    This Roadside Station is on National Route 175 in Maizuru City, Kyoto Prefecture. It has a seafood market that's considered the largest on the Sea of ??Japan. Visitors enjoy fresh fish and shellfish unloaded at Maizuru Port, including baked seafood and sashimi. In the winter, many tourists stop by for their crab.

    If you’re into murdered sea creatures this is for you. It stinks, however, it is displayed as only the Japanese can. Clean and friendly vibe.

    This ancient Shinto shrine has held the Aoi Festival every April for the past 2,500 years, and is formally recognized as the most important provincial shrine of the old Tango prefecture. The main enshrined deity is Hiko-Hoakari-no-Mikoto.

    My favorite thing about this place was the umbrella omikuji (fortunes), which had different weather along with the usual luck levels, ranging from sunny and clear to pouring rain.

    This temple in Miyazu City, Kyoto Prefecture belongs to the Myoshinji school of Rinzai Zen Buddhism. Also called Monjudo, it enshrines Monju Bodhisattva.

    Kyoto Miyadushi Monju
    Located in Miyazu Bay on the Sea of Japan on the north side of Kyoto, Amanohashidate is considered one of the three most beautiful views in Japan together with the islands of Matsushima and Itsukushima. A 3.6 kilometer long sandbar 20 to 170 meters wide separating Miyazu Bay from the inland Sea named Asokai north to south, Amanohashidate is covered with some 8,000 pine trees. Due to its seeming appearance as a bridge to the heavens, it came to be called Amanohashidate (“Bridge to Heaven.”). Many people come to see the uncanny shape of this popular sight, which was formed naturally over thousands of years.

    Approximately a seven-minute walk from the Amanohashidate Station of the Kyoto Tango Railway, and about a 10-minute drive from the Miyazu Amanohashidate Interchange off of the Kyoto Jukan Expressway, this beach is located in a westerly direction towards the ocean, starting from the north side of the Daitenkyo Bridge.

    Kyoto Kyoutangoshi Tangochousodeshi
    A chalk lighthouse standing on Cape Kyogamisaki, the northernmost point of the Kinki region. The lighthouse is one of only six in the country to use a first class lens and has been selected as one of Japan’s three best lighthouses. The lighthouse was erected here on a cliff 140 meters above the sea in 1898. Famous for its scenic beauty, visitors can get a sweeping view of a rias coastline comprised of the deep azure of the Sea of Japan and countless curious-looking stones interwoven with pillars of basalt. The area is also a rich natural habitat where falcons are confirmed to live.

    Boasting the largest open-air bath in Northern Kinki, guests come to Kumihama Onsen Yumotokan for banquets, to stay over, or just to drop by for a bath. It's a free-flowing natural hot spring set in the rural landscape of Kumihama. Their outdoor bath that can accommodate as many as 100 people at once is fed by a hot spring flowing from a rocky cliff facing the bath; there's no extra water added it's not heated. It's a great place to relax and enjoy the seasonal scenery.

    The indoor bath is extremely hot even for Japanese baths, and I couldn’t really use it because of that, but the outdoor bath was more comfortable (still plenty hot!) and absolutely gorgeous with some...

    A beach northeast of the Shotenkyo. Situated on the westernmost tip of the six kilometer long Long Beach on the Sea of Japan, this beach is the best stretch of white sands and green pines in Sanin Kaigan National Park. During swimming season each year the beach bustles with visitors. The beach was also selected for inclusion in the 88 Best Swimming Beaches in Japan list in 2001. The waters here are shallow and excellent for families with children; another of the area's charms is its abundance of hotels nearby, making this a great destination for a trip.

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
