Enjoying right now, nice beach and ambiance, big waves, clear water but due to typhoon, waves are rough. Wish the ocean be calm so that we could enjoy more. Be back next time.

月の砂漠で有名な御宿ビーチです。一時帰国した際にしばらく滞在。 御宿は特になにもないので、晴れて風のない日は御宿ビーチが最高の場所です。 東京から100キロで綺麗なビーチに行けます。白い砂浜、水も綺麗です。上総一の宮のビーチはあんまりきれいではないので、東京近郊の綺麗なビーチは御宿から南がおすすめです。ここは電車でも歩いて10分ほどのビーチです(外房線で駅から歩いて行けるのは3か所ぐらいです)夏場は駐車場がすぐにいっぱいになるので、はやくいくのが◎。ここ数年海外からの観光客が増えているように感じます。多くの外国人を見かけるので、ここはハワイ?オーストラリア?と思ってしまうほど。 サーフィンデビューをしたい人もレンタルボードのお店が多くあるので、楽しめると思います。また夜には近くのバーで週末に野外コンサートがあったり、楽しめます♪♪ 地魚、お野菜もおいしいのでぜひ食べてもらいたいです。都心とは全く違います大変のんびりできます。 夏は人でビーチがいっぱいですが、秋~春の海ももっときれいでのんびりしたい人にはお勧めです☆ Onjuku beach is famous for Tsuki no sabaku statue. it's located 100km from Tokyo. you can take Train , bus or car. it takes 10mins walk from Onjuku station (JR) to the beach. I think that Onjuku beach is...More

This is a beach close to Tokyo but still you need a car. It is a very wavy beach. Mainly Japanese youngsters.

Plenty of room for even the amateurs; everyone is so nice. Even though there were so many people in the water, there was such a good vibe.

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...More
