Chirihama Beach Driveway (千里浜なぎさドライブウェイ)

Coast / Beach

Chirihama Beach Driveway is a tourist highway that extends for approximately 8 km along sandy beach from Imahama, Hodatsushimizu-cho, Hakui District, in Ishikawa Prefecture to Chirihama Town. The sand has been compacted so hard by the action of the waves that it is as hard as a surfaced road, making it possible for cars and buses to drive along the beach; it is the only beach driveway of its kind in Japan. In summer, many tourists visit the area to relax at the beach or go shellfish-gathering. In TripAdvisor’s 2016 Travelers’ Choice Awards for the Best Beaches in the World, Chirihama Beach ranked number one within Japan.

          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.
