Head to one of Japan’s three most iconic sights: Amanohashidate, not just for the gorgeous view, but for the music and atmosphere. Welcome to the Kyotophonie Borderless Music Festival — two days of ocean sounds, snacks, and picturesque scenery.
What to expect
The Kyotophonie Borderless Music Festival hosts some of the most talented musicians from around the world. You’ll hear a range of different instruments and styles, from Japanese-Canadian singers to Argentinian rhythm beats.
Music isn’t the only thing on the menu though, quite literally! The festival also offers a unique gastronomic experience, with Michelin-starred chefs Armand Arnal and Masayo Funakoshi joining forces to operate a pop-up restaurant. Using local ingredients, the two have created a masterful menu to give visitors a taste of their interpretation of Amanohashidate.
