Amanohashidatte (天橋立) is one of Japan's best three scenic views. The sandbar is 3.3 km long and is covered with about 7,000 pine trees. It connects two opposing sides of Miyazu Bay in northern Kyoto Prefecture.

Very very nice, with all the leading lines and the intense color here to the faded distance. This is beautiful!

Wonderful composition. The chair-lift line is beautifully connecting to the coast line and then to Amanohashidate. Perfect. Superb shot.
