Driftwood Swing "Yurari"

Main content starts here.

海の京都

Yuhigaura Beach in Kyotango City is named after its stunning sunsets. Since 2017, a handmade wooden swing called "Yurari" has been installed every year. The romantic mood of the swing standing on the white sand beach combined with the blue sea and the setting sun makes it a popular photogenic spot. When the sun sets on the coastline, the sky into all shades of reds and yellows and it is like something straight out of a movie. Relaxing on the swing while looking at the beautiful scenery is a great way to pass the time. Before, the "Yurari" was removed in winter, but starting in 2020 it will be installed all year round and you can enjoy the "Yurari" with the scenery of every season.
