Jodogahama Beach, Miyako
(4.4/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Go on a boat ride at Jodogahama Beach, or spend the time fishing in the clear azure waters. Rent a boat for sightseeing, catching fish, or exploring the blue cave. Rock formations that follow the coastline enclose the beach, not only creating scenic beauty, but also protecting the calm, swimmable waters from strong currents. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes as the terrain is rocky and slippery. Put Jodogahama Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Miyako vacation route planner.

  • I felt it is just one of today's best shades. An easy one because it was sunny and nothing more than that.

  • It is a small but worth to go beach. We could count stones at bottom of the sea. Shore has pebbles but you may lie on them. Most of the visitors were families with children and almost everybody had te...  more »
  • Sanriku representative scenic spot. Going down the basement in the first parking lot near the visitor center elevators, walking down the walkway through the sight-seeing boats, tunnels, marine House, sea trail out to the beach. Second, roadway descends further down over 100 stairs from the parking lot to the beach. SAT, Sun and summer shuttle service patrolling the parking area, beach, marine House, so quite easy to navigate. On-site white skin stand at the top of trees such as pine and go to the beach, Rocky and pebble beaches, is very famous for Japan. It is a calming beauty. Overlooking from the daiba Observatory also recommended. Easy access from the side of the first parking lot or beside the toilet opposite the marine House.

  • It is nice. A few walking trails around the area. If it is summer make sure you bring your swimming suit. Not worth the trip by itself plan other stops like the close by caves to make it truly worth this long of a drive.
  • Stunning scenary, beautiful white pebble beach, waves that move like living creatures, sounds of playing children and clinking pebbles blend with the surf to create an otherworldly atmosphere
  • This beach is famed for its rocks and picturesque landscapes. I enjoyed spending the afternoon here and taking in the scenery.
  • A beautiful scenic route. With the current yen rate it was roughly $15 for tolls. That's great for a three hour trip. I would suggest you have a riding partner the ride is a little lengthy but totally worth it. There is a national park nearly 10 minutes before you reach the beach. The beach has FREE parking & a FREE tour. Of course the guides were speaking Japanese still worth a free tour. Also, when I visited they didn't know much English so try having pictures or the translator app with you. I hope y'all end up like it
  • Great views of blue water and natural rocks. Lots of different trails and a nice little museum. Free maps and parking.
