Clear water, stunning coast line, friendly people. It's easy to walk around here and enjoy the view. Might be a tad slippery when raining but on clear days, the view is spectacular. You can hire a boat to peek into the caves under the rock...More

Really accesible if you are in Morioka, the water is clear and there is a restaurant by the beach. There is a lot of walking path with the view of the beach. The beach is exceptionally calm due to the rocks breaking the waves before...More

Jodogohama is an absolutely stunning location, with clear water, and a marvelous inlet framed by freestanding small rocky islands. It is the kind of coastline worth a long drive to see, and is emblematic of the beautiful coast in this part of Iwate Prefecture. Although...More

Having seen this beach in full sunlight and light fog, I have to say the gray outcropping rock islands that rise from the waters of the bay lend themselves to the surreal mystery of a misty day. The jagged, abrupt formations are severe and stunning;...More

Very interesting and breathtaking scenery. The beach formations were very unusual - we didn't get to swim cos it was autumn! Definitely worth a visit and great photo opportunity.

I suppose visitors to Tono Valley would have to venture out to the coast to take in this attraction, maybe that's why. But this beach features crystal clear water with a pebble bottom, and it's main claim to fame is a row of jagged rocky...More
