Although it is not recommended to swim here (the water quality is poor ...), Odaiba beach still allows you to sunbathe on the warm sand.
And not far away, in the district of Toyosu, the artificial beach, Magic Beach, welcomes visitors in a "seaside resort" atmosphere.
Yuigahama, Shichirigahama, Inamuragasaki... In the city of Kamakura, just an hour and a half from the capital, several beaches attract Tokyoites who miss building sand castles, surfers looking for good waves and fans of fireworks.
And if the heat becomes too oppressive on the sand (often scorching, be careful going barefoot), it is still possible to go to meet the great bronze Buddha or that of Hase Dera Temple, both near Yuigahama Beach.
Not far from Kamakura, the small island of Enoshima - 4km in circumference - offers a good number of attractions to its visitors: spa, shrines, gardens, aquarium ... But when the sunny weather arrives, visitors rush here for its beaches.
Enoshima is a favorite escapade for residents of the capital. Connected by a 600-meter long bridge to Honshu Island, it is easily and quickly accessible from Kamakura via the Enoden Line. Local specialties (seafood of all kinds) are served while you listen to the latest J-pop hits.
Ideally positioned in the vicinity of Yokohama and Tokyo, the town of Zushi is primarily a dormitory town... But it is also a well-known and reputed seaside resort in the region. Here, bathers swim and share the water with windsurfing enthusiasts and sea kayaks.
60 kilometers long, Kujukurihama is the second largest beach in Japan.
This long regular coast - rare on the archipelago - allows a wide variety of activities. From swimming to surfing, as well as fishing. It extends, in Chiba Prefecture, from Kujukuri to Chosei.
