Near Tokyo with easy access if by train. It is less crowded than the one near Enoshima, but with excellent view of Enoshima Island. When visiting, do not expect white sand and clear water.

It is a famous beach but it is not suitable to play on it for children. It is more for the surfers. The thing to do is to go to restaurant along the coast and enjoy the view.

Nice beach, some surfing, waves are small to medium. Very windy, be sure to bring a jumper. Nice cafe near by the beach, also there's a 7-11 if one needs to change or use the washroom.

We did the classical tour around Japan and wanted to check some beachy places. It was autumn and was very windy, but you can see some surfers hanging around. I guess summer would be quite crowdy. Anyway, if around, some to check it out!

Lots of visitors through out the year to enjoy beautiful sceneries. Do enjoy during sun rise or sun set time.

Go down to the beach, drop your shoes&socks and stay in the shallow water for a few waves, very relaxing and just the treatment you feet deserve after a day of visiting. Don't worry about the sand, not much will get on you and there...More

There are a few spots along the promenade that Hawks swirl and glide above you. They are beautiful and majestic! BUT, beware of the food in your hand. I got my beef cake cutlet being snatched by a gigantic hawk in a split of sec,...More

the easiest way to get there (aside from driving) is to take the Enoden train. there are always surfers there.
