Beach Bathing Facility Spots in Ishikawa Area

  • Chirihama Beach
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Ishikawa Pref. Hakuishi Chirihamamachi
    "Chirihama Beach is located near the Chirihama Interchange on the Noto Satoyama Kaido highway; cars can drive right onto the beach. During the season when the beach is officially open, from July 10 until late August, three zones are delineated based on their proximity to the sea: the ""Sea Bathing Area"" closest to the sea, the ""Driving Zone,"" and the ""Parking Zone."" The ""Driving Zone"" is the famous Chirihama Nagisa Driveway, which is the only area of its kind in Japan where not only passenger cars but also buses, motorcycles and bicycles can ride or drive along the beach. The beach shelves gently, so the waves are not too big, making it suitable for swimming. Visitors can also collect clams etc. on the beach."
  • Matsushima Beach and Auto-Camping Ground
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Ishikawa Pref. Nanaoshi Notojimanozakimachi 89-44-31
    A swimming beach in Nozakimachi, Notojima, Nanao City. Take a dip in the crystal-clear sea or enjoy day camping and BBQing at the attached auto-camping site. There's a bridge that connects to Matsushima Island just off shore and warm showers open 24 hours a day and with reservation you can participate in a soba noodle making experience.
  • Masuhogaura Beach
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Ishikawa Hakui-gun Shikamachi
    A beach selected for inclusion in a list of the 55 Best Swimming Beaches in Japan. The beach is a four-kilometer-long, continuous stretch of clear ocean and white sands. The waters of the beach are extremely clear, on par with Waikiki’s own on clear days. The beach is also counted alongside Wakanoura in Wakayama Prefecture and Yuigahama in Kanagawa Prefecture as one of Japan’s three best destinations for seashell gathering. In addition, the beach is famous as the location of the “longest bench in the world,” a 460-meter-long bench once listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. From November through March, a wind known to bring seashells ashore blows, and during this time the shells of Nitidotellina nitidula and 35 other shellfish species appearing in the poems of the traditional 36 Shellfish Poems Anthology wash up on the beach.
  • Uchinada Beach
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Ishikawa Kahoku-gun Uchinadamachi
    One of the beaches of the Uchinada Coast extending nine kilometers north to south along the Sea of Japan. The biggest beach on the coast, it is also the closest to Kanazawa City. The beach is wide and sandy, its waters shallow. During swimming season, the beach is visited not only by town residents but also people from across the prefecture and beyond. In most years, jellyfish appear from around the time of the Bon Festival, and thus it is recommended to come before this time. You can see people enjoying marine sports such as windsurfing and bodysurfing as early as before the start of the rainy season.
  • Notojima Marine Park Beach
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Ishikawa Nanao-shi Notojimasanamimachi 29-2
    A calm beach located on the inner side of Nanao Bay, making it the perfect destination for families with children. Visitors can enjoy the sandy beach and go shellfish gathering in its rocky areas; the Hyokkori Onsen Shima-no-Yu bathhouse also adjoins the beach, meaning you can enjoy a hot spring bath after a full day of swimming and playing in the sun.
  • Katano Beach
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Ishikawa Pref. Kagashi Katanomachi
    A swimming beach located a 10 minute drive from the Kaga Interchange on the Hokuriku Expressway. The beach is renowned for its beautiful sands and highly transparent waters. Swimming can be enjoyed here for approximately one month from mid-July to mid-August. A lovely pine forest grows on the right hand side of the beach. On clear days, beachgoers can see Tojinbo, one of Fukui Prefecture's most scenic areas, across the beach's waters. The beach's privately operated clubhouses offer a variety of services including showers and equipment rentals. They also conduct yoga classes and music events. The beach's parking area has 30 free parking spaces and, on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, and on the Bon Festival, another 200 paid parking spaces are made available.
  • Sodegahama Beach
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Ishikawa Wajima-shi Fugeshimachi Sodegahama
    A white sand beach connecting to scenic Kamogaura on the north side of downtown Wajima City. Notable for its blue skies and clear waters, the beach was also included in a list of Selection of Best 100 Beach because of its beauty. The beach's waters are shallow, ensuring that even small children can safely play in the ocean here. There's also an adjoining campground, making this a great destination for outdoor activities such as sea fishing and barbecuing. A nearby walking path leads to Kamogaura, as well, and one of the area's appeals is the fact that there's much more to enjoy here than just a day at the beach, including the stately Tatsugasaki Lighthouse and Horaizan Park. The beach is also easily accessible by car thanks to nearby parking.

    Ishikawa Nanao-shi

    こぢんまりとした海水浴場です。 駐車場800円、シャワーは1分100円。 更衣室、トイレあり。 白い砂地で、水もきれい。 遠浅で、子どもも安心。 台風一過で、吹返しが強かったのですが、湾になっているせいか、穏やかでした。 カフェもおしゃれでおいしかったです。

Ishikawa Areas


Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
