Kyoto by the Sea

Amanohashidate Viewland

Amanohashidate Viewland is located on top of Mt. Monju, and can be reached via cable car or chair lift. The cable car chair lift is only a short walk from Amanohashidate Station, making it an easy way to catch panoramic views of Amanohashidate, one of Japan's Three Scenic Views. Amanohashidate Viewland is on the south side of the Amanohashidate land bridge.
When you get to the top, you will see people bending over to view the land bridge through their legs. This is called "matanozoki" and people do it because when upside down, the bays look like the sky and Amanohashidate becomes a green dragon flying across it. There are also a variety of family friendly attractions, such as a ferris wheel, sky-rail with pedal-cars, a sky walk, and many other rides and activities.
