Tango Peninsula is one of the most underrated areas in Kyoto if not Kansai in my opinion. It offers a coastline of beautiful beaches, fishing villages, and one of Japan’s three scenic views, Amanohashidate. It would have been much easier to drive around the peninsula and see more of the raw nature of seaside Japan, but local train rides were lovely too. The Kyoto Tango Railway operates with old trains that run through scenic villages and mountains covering in snow. For a city girl that I was in Hong Kong, without sounding like the cliche “wanderlust” wannabe, the trip did give me the peace, relaxation, and connection with nature that I craved and wanted to appreciate.
And a couple snaps from Kyoto City.
