    We couldn't ever go to the coast of Chiba, but this year to Shimoda. Close to eleven and. The water is beautiful. Sand smooth. Elementary school grades more than fun? Young dog fish, so a little bit scary. Manor is stunningly bad. Dirty garbage. So many people to Boogie Board, without worrying about the Commision dangerous to a small child of water's edge. Chiba sea compared to the location of the rocky shoreline; No fish are naka居. Tide is high.

    The student was doing part-time jobs in Shirahama. You may also travel. Still, the sea is clean. A drawback is that Ocean House is not?. Fine if you stay near the hotel may not be. It seems cheaper beach umbrellas and snowed, borrowed from the Tourism Association. We had good weather, better skin damage.

    This is the best beach one could have near Tokyo. Initially we thought to go to the Cape for some sightseeing and skip the beach. Since it became a very hot day we decided otherwise and hit the beach and it is the best decision we made until sometime. The beach was very beautiful. White sand, blue waters. There were no rocks and any garbage going into the water and we had a great time in the beach. There are also hot water bathing showers just across the road running aside the beach, which was comfortable for washing all the sand away. Recommended to visit if you are in Tokyo for summer.
