Park, pine trees and beach
Mar 2021 • Solo
Kehino Matsubara is a beach with pine trees. This area is a park called Matsubara Park. As I visited, it was not a high season and it seems to be a little bit deserted.

A Port City in Ancient Japan?
Feb 2019 • Solo
he Ancient Korea Peninsula was divided into three kingdoms; Baekje, Silla and Goguryeo. Goguryeo was destroyed by the alliance of Silla and the Tang-Dynasty China. Dae Jo-yeong (?-719), a former general of Goguryeo, turned away the Tang armies in Tianmenling, and later founded Balhae. Balhae looked to Japan, the enemy of their enemies, and sent delegations across the Sea of Japan. The central government of Japan built Matsubara Guesthouse in Tsuruga, Echizen Province, and opened its second door to the continent in central Japan after the first door of Dazai-fu, Chikuzen Province, in western Japan. The guesthouse is presumed to have been somewhere around today's Kehi-no-Matsubara in Tsuruga City, Fukui Prefecture, but its remains are yet to be found.

Nice get away for a day
Jul 2018 • Couples
It's a city beach. I went there in a hot week day. It was all empty, with very few people. From the train station I took a 200 yenes bus ride to get there. Afterwards you can take a shower in the beach house for 300 yenes.

This is a very peaceful area with a lovely beach to be enjoyed by families. Sand is clean with a lovely view across the ocean. For us the pine forest bordering the beach was the best part. The pine trees are spectacular in their height and a walk through the area via the walking paths is a must. It is a very calming experience to be experienced.

Nice quiet beach
Nov 2016 • Solo
Had a nice short walk along the beach. Although the weather was quite cold but it's not to windy to have a good walk to get ocean breeze with a hint of pine tree scent along the coast line.

Pleasant with nice view for family swimming and public transport
Jul 2016 • Family
No doubt there are various other emptier beaches in the height of summer, but this is very pleasant. The beach houses that are reasonably priced (beach itself free) make it comfortable to sit in the shade and watch the shallow area. There is a toy boat with slide that pleases toddlers to age 11. The view is an old famous view. While there is now a container area way to the right, the main visa is still lovely. It really was pretty moderately populated even on a beautiful day that was "Ocean Day." Tsuruga is less than one hour from Kyoto on the Thunderbird express, and served by multiple lines. From the station a 10 minute bus - easy. The forest is nice for a walk and there is a playground. Typical Japanese mainland beach with a lot of rocks, so some water shoes might be nice to have. People collect the beautiful rocks. The birds hovering over the forest are lovely too. Food is not great, but there is plenty of food to buy there without having to pack. Bathrooms are OK for a public park, but only the handicapped/family bathroom has a western toilet. There are picnic tables at the edges of the woods with ocean view. You could also rent a BBQ space. You can rent an inner tube or use their pump for toys you bring. A person working there spoke excellent English. But most people there were Japanese families from around Osaka, Hyogo, Gifu, Nagoya, and local kids who came in on bicycles. This beach tends toward a working-class Japanese crowd, and ash trays are offered in the beach houses. There is plenty of fresh air, but if this would bother you, you might choose another type of seat or see if you can find an emptier place. And people do smoke while watching their kids at the shoreline. I couldn't smell it with the breeze, but I know it would bother some tourists. This beach has a long history, depicted in woodblock prints, ancient poetry, and visited by the Meiji Emperor. Not fancy or sublime, but really lovely if you want to go to the beach with your kids and have an easy time of it.

beautiful in November

It was a very special visit in November, where nobody there, just sun above our heads and quiet sea in front of our eyes. By the way, the sea was not so cold.

Beach and pine forest
Mar 2015 • Family
Pretty good for a city beach. The place has a lovely smell from the nearby pine forest. Even enjoyable in March for beach-combing.

Only if you really like beaches (and cant somewhere else)
Aug 2012 • Friends
This beach in the summer can be over crowded and over priced, which makes it a little tiresome for a visit. If you are looking for a beach, I would skip this particular one and look for the many others in the areas- around Mihama there are great ones that are not as crowded.
If you want to avoid paying for the parking area, park at the pachinko/supermarket and walk 10 minutes.
