Amanohashinodate, on the Miyazu Bay in the northern section of Kyoto, is a thin beach about 20-170 meters wide that stretches out 3.6 kilometers. Its unique shape and the 8000 pine trees that line its surface make it one of the three great sights of Japan. Thus there are plenty of hotels around it, with the establishments that provide a view of the scenery from guest rooms and baths being particularly popular! In this article, we'll take a look at three places to stay we recommend.
A Full View of Miyazu Bay:Hotel and Resort Kyoto Miyazu
This hotel stands atop a wide-open highland with a perfect side-view of Amanohashidate. The lush, green garden has a pool for swimming and relaxing in summer, all while enjoying the Miyazu Bay scenery. The hotel sells souvenirs and sponsors seasonal events, such as strawberry picking. And don't worry, its international cast of staff members provide helpful support. (Please inquire regarding international staff shifts)
The large, stylish guest rooms also impress. The standard twin room is a broad 36 square meters, and the beds are very relaxing semi-double sizes. The hotel boasts a variety of rooms: 4-person family rooms that include tatami-floored spaces, suite rooms, pair suite rooms, and more.
You can take your baths in the in-house hot spring. The outdoor bath space uses water fresh from Yura beach, and the footbath on the observation deck with a view of the scenery is a must-try. There's also a large indoor bath as well as a sauna, so this is where you want to go to get in that valuable relaxation time.
Many restaurants are present in the hotel, with establishments of Japanese, Chinese and French cuisine overlooking the Miyazu Bay, as well as an izakaya and bar. The Tango region, of which Amanohashidate and Miyazu are a part, is blessed with bountiful seas and mountains, meaning whichever restaurant you visit, it will have food made with the freshest seasonal ingredients.

The Natural Hot Springs and Dining are a Must!
Amanohashidate Hotel is only a minute's walk from Kyoto Tango Railway's Amanohashidate Station, and like the name suggests, it has a clear view of the whole strip. Not only from the guest rooms, either - you can see it from the hot springs, from the footbaths by the coast, and multiple other locations. There are souvenir shops to peruse and karaoke booths to enjoy, and the signs in the hotel have English on them.
Of the 52 rooms available, 48 of them face the sea, allowing you to get a relaxing view of natural wonder. Aside from Japanese and Western fusion-styled rooms, there are Japanese rooms, Japanese beds, Western rooms, and rooms with (non-hot spring) outdoor baths.
The facility’s natural hot spring, Amanohashidate Onsen, has 13 bathing facilities to be enjoyed depending on the day and time.
The outdoor baths, Amatesu and Tsukuyomi, are named after the mythical Japanese deities Amaterasu Omikami and Tsukuyomi no Mikoto and have a view of the Amanohashidate. The large common bath has many variations within, including a lying bath, a sitting bath, a leaning bath, a sauna, a steam path, and more. Non-guest visitors can also use the Nakatsukuni Footbath for free, so if you're in the area during a walk, give it a try!
The food, emblematic of Tango's seasons, is as luxurious as can be. Beautifully presented fresh sashimi, beef tobanyaki, small nabe, the works. There's also crab to enjoy when winter comes. And if it’s western food you’re after, you can visit the Auberge Amanohashidate, the adjacent hotel, and go to their French restaurant on the ground floor.

Enjoy a Garden Bath and Guest Room Outdoor Baths!
This relaxed, Japanese-style hotel has a wonderful view of Amanohashidate to the east. It’s known for all 30 of its rooms having a view of the sight and its hot spring's beautifying effects on the skin: it boasts a garden hot spring and outdoor baths in the rooms. Check out the facility "Relaxation: Yumekokochi" for their massages, too!
The rooms afford their guests a panoramic view of Amanohashidate and are available in a variety of types. From standard Japanese rooms to rooms with outdoor baths and more Japanese/Western fusion-style rooms, you'll be sure to find a suitable place to stay. Rooms with outdoor baths have them on wooden decked terraces, Japanese rooms have granite bath tubs, and the fusion rooms have Shigaraki-made bathtubs, giving you a wonderful bathing experience at any time of day.
The shared common bath is expansive. While there are indoor baths, this facility has a unique garden bath, with a full view of the trees surrounding the hotel. We recommend the rental outdoor baths for families and couples (paid, reservation needed) - they provide an amazing view of the scenery from refreshing hot waters. Enjoy them to your heart's content and find out why their baths were picked as one of Japan's top 100 hot springs.
There's a perfect spot for watching the sun rise over Amanohashidate within walking distance from the hotel, as well. While you can enjoy the sight from your room, we have to recommend taking a morning walk. The sight is well worth waking up early, and this hotel truly makes you look forward to the next morning!
