Kotohiki Beach (Kakezu Beach Resort)琴引浜(掛津海水浴場)
A designated National Place of Scenic Beauty and Natural Monument, this beach offers “singing sands” which make a pleasant squeaking noise when stepped on. The beach’s waters are extremely clear. Walk along its 1.8 kilometer length and you will find some portions make a sound like a drum. “Singing sands” are a sign that a beach is extremely clean and as the ashes from cigarettes disrupts this effect, no smoking is permitted on the beach. A free open-air bath where you can warm yourself in between swims is located in the middle of the beach.

Kyoto Main Areas
Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
