Kanzaki Seaside Resort (神崎海水浴場)

Located on the coast facing the Sea of Japan in Maizuru City in Kyoto Prefecture, Kanzaki Seaside Resort is blessed with scenic beauty. It is on the right bank at the mouth of the Yura-gawa River, a first-class river.

Features

The gently sloping beach is approximately two kilometers long, and is one of the longest beaches on the Sea of Japan. This sea resort is famous for its scenic beauty, with beautiful pine trees along the long beach and white sand brought here by the Yura-gawa River which is a first-class river, and the beach and its surrounding area are designated as Wakasa Bay Quasi-National Park.

Before the beach opens each year, people of the nearby community volunteer to come out to clean the beach, where, at the side of pine trees, bloom a variety of flowers such as rugosa roses (local people call them 'hamanashi'), 'sasa-yuri' (Japanese lilies) and 'oni-yuri' (tiger lilies).

It is also known as a good fishing spot for sillagos.

The beach opens on July 1 every year.
