Beach Vacations in Japan

Beach Vacations in Japan

As a long, thin string of islands in the Pacific, it comes as no surprise that Japan has some incredible beaches. Whether you just want a nice place to sunbathe, or are looking for an underwater snorkeling adventure, we can plan for you the perfect Japan beach getaway.

Those looking to plan a beach day to relax in the sun away from the Tokyo skyscrapers have a few options for consideration when considering which beach is the right one for them. A couple beaches nearby, such as Odaiba Beach, are good for sunbathing, but swimming is prohibited due to poor water quality. Going a little further out into neighboring regions will yield more satisfying results when planning a day in the surf. Along the Shonan Coastline in Kanagawa prefecture, the Kamakura and Enoshima beaches are swimming areas popular with summer beachgoers. Chiba prefecture’s Boso Peninsula is dominated on one side by the Kujukurihama coastline, offering beaches good for surfing and body boarding, while Izu peninsula in Shizuoka prefecture has some beaches good for snorkeling as well.

Of course, none of these beaches really hold a candle to those found in Okinawa Prefecture, the crème de la crème of Japan’s beach property. All the best opportunities for swimming, surfing, and snorkeling are found here. Miyako Island usually holds the records for the best beaches, with Maehama Beach commonly at or near the top of the rankings. Other beaches along the Eastern Cape are noted for their especial loveliness, and are nationally designated by Japan as a Place of Scenic Beauty. Any of these beaches would be an idyllic location for a beach holiday.
