The formation of this sandbar separated Kumihama Bay from the Sea of Japan. Its name, which means "Little Bridge to Heaven," was inspired by the more famous Amanohashidate, a sandbar that is one of the three great views of Japan and whose name means "Bridge to Heaven." The sand shoreline extends for roughly 8 km, making it the longest beach in the northern Kinki region.
