Walking & Hiking

Even though the Tango peninsula is not so big, there are several excellent walks to do in the immediate area. There are also many smaller walks that are not too long or too difficult, making them perfect for families with younger children, or older grandparents. Everyone can take part and be outdoors together! Below you will find information on small hikes and walks we have done as a family. Please click the photos or DIRECTIONS in red.

Amanohashidate Walks

Amanohashidate is one of Japan’s most popular destinations. There is plenty to do; several lovely walks, loads of gift shops and restaurants, and magical views. For guests without a car, we recommend heading for Amino station and taking the light railway one-man carriage to Amanohashidate station. It’s a great trip!
