Jodogahama Beach, Miyako

4.4
#1 of 32 in Beaches in Tohoku
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. Use our Miyako trip maker site to arrange your visit to Jodogahama Beach and other attractions in Miyako.

  • Promenade is installed, if you have time, you can explore a number of ways. And exhibits in the visitor centre, toilets, break is useful.

  • Walk from the parking lot in Dim lighting, and waited for sunrise. From horizon Sunrise but is not very nice.

  • This beach is famed for its rocks and picturesque landscapes. I enjoyed spending the afternoon here and taking in the scenery.
  • If I was here for the first time I would have been seriously wowed. But I have walked 500 miles (literally, I'm on a walking pilgrimage from Hachinohe to Fukushima) so perhaps there are more majestic places along the Coast of Tohoku, but this is a little gem in itself. The Japanese call it the Pure Land Beach. The seagulls call this the Free Crackers Beach. When the tsunami came, the sea had receded so much the people knew to run away. The ferry area has a place where they play videos about the tsunami. If you take the ferry, they'll bring you to the Blue Cave and you can see a hole in the rocks, where water from Hachinohe flows in and try to squeeze their darndest past a hole, resulting in a spray of water that had escape their confines, like fats after a corset. The colours of the water change according to season, but the seagulls that perch on your ferry will not. They remain the same, winter, spring, summer or fall. All you have to do is call. And throw them a cracker. For the best views of the Pacific Ocean and the Coastal Area of Tohoku...follow my reviews because it's easier that way. I want you to come to Tohoku! Spend your money here and go back richer for the experience! It's a marvelous part of Japan!
  • 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
  • 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
