The Beaches of Tokyo

To cool off and enjoy some time by the beach, there's no need to even leave the capital city of Japan. Tokyo Bay has a lot to offer its summertime visitors...

Odaiba beach

Odaiba

The artificial island of Odaiba is home to quite a few ultra-modern buildings in Tokyo Bay. But it also has a nice little beach, with a view of the Rainbow Bridge in the background.

Even though it's not recommended to go swimming (the water quality leaves something to be desired), Odaiba beach is still a great place to enjoy a little sunbathing on the warm sand.

Not too far away, in the district of Toyosu, the artificially created Magic Beach also welcomes visitors in its "resort" atmosphere.

 

Kamakura : Enoshima and Mount Fuji

Kamakura

Yuigahama, Shichirigahama, Inamuragasaki... 
In the city of Kamakura, just an hour and a half from the capital, several beaches beckon Tokyo residents looking to create sandcastles, surfers looking for good waves, and anyone looking for some great fireworks.

If the heat becomes too oppressive on the sand (it often burns bare feet, be careful where and how you step!), you can always go to see the great bronze Buddha or the Temple Hase-dera, both near Yuigahama Beach.

 
Zushi beach

Enoshima

Not far from Kamakura, Enoshima Island-- 4km in circumference-- offers a good number of attractions for visitors. Spas, shrines, gardens, aquariums... but its the beaches that make this island overrun with people on sunny days.

Enoshima is a favorite escape of residents of the capital. Connected by a 600 foot long bridge to Honshu Island, it is easily and quickly accessible from Kamakura via the Enoden line. Savor the local specialties (including all kinds of seafood) while listening to the latest J-Pop hits. 

Kamakura beach

Zushi

Ideally located in the vicinity of Yokohama and Tokyo, the city of Zushi mainly acts as a sort of dormitory... But it is also a seaside resort well-known in the region.

Here, sea- and sunbathers gather alongside windsurfing and sea kayaking adventurers.
