Went after 2pm so the sun wasn't so hot. The water was warm and not so strong. The bathrooms could be a little cleaner, but they have showers to wash off salt water from your body. The sand is soft too. Nice place to relax...More

It was possibly the most unforgettable train ride I had. The JR Himi Line (氷見線) is only 16.5 km in total, but the scenery definitely blew my mind, in particular the Amaharashi Coast. The name Amaharashi comes from a legend whereby Minamoto no Yoshitsune (源義経),...More
