    兵庫県には数多くの海水浴場がありますが、ホテル・旅館などと海岸まで歩いて1分で出られる所はここぐらいじゃないかと。以前新舞子には行ったことがあるのですが、宿泊施設は丘の上にある所が多く、海岸に海の家は多数ある物の、浜まで荷物をもっていくのが大変でした。 砂浜は比較的綺麗かと思いますが、余り遠浅とは感じませんでした。小さいお子様連れの方は、いきなり急に深くなる場所があるので注意した方が良いです...

Hyogo Main Areas


Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
