Tango Amanohashidate

Connected to Heaven: Amanohashidate

Amanohashidate is a long sandbar 3.6km (2.2 miles) in length, 20m to 170m (70-560ft) in width, covered by 5,000 pine trees. Compared to a divine bridge, it has been a poetic motif since ancient times. Stone slabs inscribed with haiku or tanka poems written by great poets and even the Emperor dot the sandbar, so that visitors can hear the words of their ancestors.
