Mikasahama Beach, Hatsukaichi
Featuring a narrow strip of coarse yellow sand, Mikasahama Beach offers views of a "floating" torii, the famous sacred red gate of the Itsukushima sanctuary. During the day, there is hardly enough room on the sand to spread a couple of towels, but as the day goes by and the tide recedes, more people come to the beach to stroll along the shore and enjoy picturesque sunset views across the water to the Japanese mainland. Keep an eye open for the friendly deer that roam around the beach looking for food. To visit Mikasahama Beach and other attractions in Hatsukaichi, use our Hatsukaichi travel planner.
Mikasahama Beach Reviews
宮島桟橋からずっと歩いく右手に見えてくる海沿いの綺麗に整備された浜です。 干潮と満ち潮のときで全然違った様子を見せます。 私が行ったときは満ち潮で海水が浜をたくさん覆っていましたが干潮の時は大鳥居まで歩いていけそうです。 白い綺麗な浜でした。 more »It is a beautifully maintained beach by the sea which can be seen on the right hand side which walks from Miyajima Pier. It shows a completely different appearance at low tide and high tide. When I went, the seawater covered a lot of beaches at high tide, but at low tide, i was able to walk to Otorii. It was a beautiful white beach.
宮島口からフェリーで宮島入り。山道から見える海岸線から、厳島神社、大鳥居一帯が、ミカサノハマです。古くは、鳥居の洲とも呼ばれていたそうです。干潮時は、鳥居まで歩きましょう。 more »From Miyajima guchi, take a ferry to Miyajima. From the coastline seen from the mountain path, Itsukushima Shrine and Otorii area are mikasanohama. It is said that it was called the state of torii in old times. At low tide, walk to torii.
