Trip to Amanohashidate (Kyoto, Japan)

Cultural Activities

Kyoto New Acropolis students took a 2-day trip to Amanohashidate, known as one of the three most scenic spots in all of Japan.

According to Japanese mythology, Izanagi, one of the two deities (along with his wife Izanami) who gave rise to Japan’s many islands (kuniumi), built a bridge to travel between heaven and earth to see Izanami, however , the bridge fell onto land, thus forming what is now Amanohashidate.

We arrived there on a Saturday night, and after a talk about the difference between falling in love and true love, we relaxed for a while in the hotel’s hot springs. The next day in the morning, we crossed the sandbar and took the cable car to see the view from above.
When we were at the observatory it started to rain and we took the opportunity to do some conversation and oratory exercises.
To end the day, we all had lunch and delicious coffee together and returned home feeling refreshed and inspired by the energy of this amazing place.
