Hamazume Yuhigaura Beach

Main content starts here.


Hamazume Yuhigaura Beach is located in Kyoto prefecture's, Kyotango city, and is a long beach stretching 8km from Shotenkyo Kazuranohama Beach.
The beach is one of the 100 White Sand and Pine Tree of Japan, and has fine white sand grains that stretch for miles, with a beautiful shallow and very transparent water by its side.
The name 'Yuhigaura' means 'sunset bay' in Japanese, and as the name would suggest, it is a perfect location for watching the sunset, with benches provided on sunset street (Yuhi-no-Michi) along the beach to relax.
Also, from the Spring of 2017 a beachside swing called 'Yurari' (swaying in English) made from driftwood is built every summer. It has become famous in recent years through its popularity on social media
