“Wild, clean & quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

It is far from Tokyo, but definitely worth the journey. It has a friendly vibe, the sand is (relatively) garbage-free, the water is clear and clean; and there are almost no beach house, which means that you can enjoy the sound of waves, as opposed to tacky eurobeat blaring from some beach-house's speakers (Zushi beach anyone??).

“Off the beaten track”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

The sleepy town of Onjuku is a quick 1.5hr train ride away from Tokyo. The town is most famous for its beach - especially in the summer when it becomes a paradise for surfers. A quick visit to the beach and neighbouring fishing village Katsuura (which has a spa hotel where you can try a variety of onsen, even just as a day guest) offers a great day trip away from the hustle of Tokyo.
