The coast line from Takeno and west to Tottori is very easily travelled by local train which runs "on the coast" most of the way. Great views from the train window. I spent a day getting on and off, taking a walk or rent-a-bike ride...More

Dear harle l, Our apologies for the late reply. Thank you very much for your valuable feedback. We are sorry to hear that you felt disappointed with the beach. The beach is sometimes littered after heavy rains and winds bring a lot of trash back...More

Takeno beach is absolutely beautiful, the turquoise blue water laps upon white sand, as green mountains loom at either end of the bay. When we visited, it was early evening and we had the beach to ourselves. With it being so quiet, we got to...More

Dear Chris_DJ_Bear_Acton, We really appreciate your time and comment. You will be surprised if you return here in summer. Three hundred thousand people come to Takeno Beach and enjoy swimming in the clear water every summer. The swimming period is from the beginning of July...More

Received a small simple map after check in to the hotel in Kinosakionsen, the hotel staff recommend the beach. Since the beach is nearby (we've been told that can be reached by train, only 1 stop away) we decided to go ahead with this unplanned...More

if you are kinosaki for at least two days, I recommend you take 2-3 hours break from onsen to do just a walk (or why not a bath) on this beautiful beach. The Takeno village is a bit 'desolate, perhaps mindful of past glories. However,...More

The beach is pretty wide and relatively clean. The water and the winds are rough though (I went in February). But the water is nice and blue and it is fascinating to watch the waves crash on the stones. Unfortunately there are no walkways along...More

very near to Kinosakionsen. I went there last May and the wind was very strong that time and the weather still chill. This place is a hidden beauty for foreigner but I bet for the local, it's quite famous family holiday spot especially during summer.

This is one of the cleanest, most beautiful beaches I've seen anywhere in Japan. Spend the day swimming, snorkeling, and soaking up the sun, then take a dip in the onsen in the evening. The summer festival fireworks are some of the best in the...More
