What is summer without the ocean?
There was a beach volleyball tournament at the beach in Shonan, which we went to see. Kugenuma Beach is the super popular spot where everyone comes to swim, surf and party in the summer. As you can imagine, it's pretty darn crowded.
After some time watching the volleyball games, we headed down the coast towards Kamakura.
Now Shichiri-ga-hama Beach is more my style. There aren't as many people, due to the lack of shower facilities. Just local surfers and an occasional bbq going on. The sand is almost black and the waves are strong and constant. I've always loved this spot to look out to sea.
Did I also mention that you can see Mount Fuji from the beach? It looks incredibility close from here, which I love.
Which beach is more your style?
