Kotohikihama Kakezu Beach
Kotohikihama, Kakezu Beach is a famous beach located in Amino. Most known for its “Singing Sand,” and is often included in the top 100 lists of tourist destinations. Kotohikihama was also designated by the Japanese government as a Natural Monument, and became the first smoke-free beach in the world. The locals of this area are particularly enthusiastic with environmental protection.
There is also camping available on the beach.
Along the beach, there is an open-air bath with Gensen-Kakenagashi (water flowing directly from the hot spring source) that visitors can bathe in with bathing suits during business hours.
Unfortunately the open-air bath on the beach is closed for the time being due to Covid-19.
