    Shame about the bridge across the view. Excellent sand texture and color. Great for wedding photos apparently… As there were at least three couples in matrimonial garb on a clouded over Saturday Sunset.

    Nice beach with full set of amenities (lifeguard, sun beds and umbrellas, shower and changing room). Swimming area is quite limited though. Looks like jet skis could be rented on site.

    During my journey to Tohoku Region summer of 2019, I chose Hachinohe as my base of two-days layover and sightseeing before traveling onward to Oirase Gorge. Tanesashi Seaside Park is one of the Pacific Coast's Sanriku Fukko(reconstruction) national parks, that are recovered from 2011's Tsunami destruction. It is also designated as one of the national's scenic beauties. The grassy seaside beach park opens to the scenic views of Pacific Ocean and rugged sea rocks dotted here and there. Tanesashi Coast is also well known for the grassy wetland and nature habitats with variety of wildflowers and coastal plants growing from Spring to Fall.
    Along Tanesashi Coast there are a few recommended visiting sites. Kabushima, a small island off the coast, is the breeding ground for black-tailed seagull Umineko population, that is unique to other regular seagulls. Kabushima Shrine is sitting on top of the hill. Osuka Coast and Shirahama Beach where sand sings with squeals when walking on it. The top attraction is the Tanesashi Kaigan (Seaside) Park which covers a large area of grassy meadows and breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Within the vicinity of Kaigan there are tourist information center, restaurant, souvenir shops and a few lodging facilities.
    JR East local train Hachinohe Line runs between Hachinohe and Kuji, makes stop at Same Station, Matsu-Shirahama Station (access to Shirahama Beach), and Tanesashi Kaigan Station. During Spring, Summer and early Fall season local 100 yen sightseeing buses operate daily (winter season only run on the weekend and holidays) between Same Station and Tanesashi Kaigan Station, making stops at several costal major attractions. For the nature’s lovers there are several hiking trails that lead to the coastal coves, look out points, Samekado Lighthouse, pine forests, nature habitats area and fishing ports. If weather is nice a day trip visit along the coast is worthy of your time. During hot summer season, wear sun blocking gears are recommended.

    We decided to go here last minute and had a wonderful afternoon playing with our golden retrievers and kids in the waves. Almost had the beach to ourselves and sunset was breathtaking! Bathroom facility clean but no showers to rinse off sand. Cost about 7000 yen in tolls each way from Fussa. Many attractions around the area to see if more time.

    Nirai Beach is truly Okinawan at heart. Not a touristy trap, but a place of cultural importance. The area is surrounded by nature. Lovely ocean, flora, people. It's quite a cultural experience to visit. If staying in the hotel Nikko Alivila or just a visitor you will have a great time. It's my secret place to visit away from the crowds when I want to experience Okinawa intimately.

    This long stretch of sand is ideal for a wide variety of water based activities in addition to being safe for children and families to relax on. A clear day there are excellent views of Enoshima Island, Mt Fuji and the Izu pennisula coastline. The beach is book-ended at one end by the picturesque Morito Shrine.

    A short walk on a lovely boardwalk brings you to the 1500 ancient gnarly pine trees along the coast. The black volcanic sand on the beach is a great foreground to photos of Mt Fuji. This Unesco world heritage site is worth a visit.

    Sunset Beach has beautiful view although while the time we're staying weather was not too nice. But still nice to visit.

    Located in Tateyama, Chiba Prefecture.
    It is a wonderful place along the coast line and acts like an extension to the mainland. The place offers brilliant views during the evenings and especially during the sunset.

    December 2020, a clear, sunny, crisp day. The wind is gusting. You see the winds hitting the breakwater.

    While the weather is too cold to go swimming but what a view. Water is emerald green and aquamarine blue. White sands and there were no people.

    This is an obvious summer hotspot but during the winter months, it is a beautiful place to enjoy the ocean smell and enjoy the amazing scenery.

    The lack of people is what made this trip memorable for us however I can imagine that during the summer, this place will be overcrowded.

    The ocean is so beautiful, blue colored and clear. The sand is a brownish color, not white like I'm use to. The crowds are typical on a public beach. What I like is the scenery of rock formations in the ocean.
