  • Love it. It's well worth the 3 hr drive.
  • 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.
  • Beach is lovely but it's super crowded.
  • A great place to watch the sunrise and sunset
  • White sand beach with clear water, Good for surfing On weekend crowded badly
