JAPAN Travel

Enjoy Like Locals: Okurakaigan Beach (Hyogo Ken)

Hello guys!

Sorry for skipping 😦

Okay let’s get started! Today I’ll share about Okurakaigan Beach. Well, it’s summer here already in Japan. What comes to your mind when you hear “Summer”? As for me, the first thing that comes to my mind is Beach!

Let’s go to the beach!

Okay, as usual, let me show you the access.

The nearest station is Asagiri station, please click here to open the location on Google Maps. It can’t be seen in the picture above, but they also have a supermarket nearby. Also, they do have park and another beach.

It will take around 1,5 hour. The fastest way to go there is by taking the express train and get off at Akanishi station. It’s 5 stations away from Osaka Station (Umeda). Yes, it would be the next station after Asagiri station. However, it’s faster rather than taking the local train through the journey. When you arrived at Asagiri station, change to local train that bound for Osaka. Well, you have to get off at the next stop, Asagiri station.

You know what’s so great about this beach? It’s so close from the station! You only have to walk like for 2 or 3 minutes! Then, voila! You’ll see the beach. It’s small tho, but for me, it’s enough to cure my long for the beach. You’ll find 711 and mister donuts in the station area. So you can pick some food and do a picnic at the beach.

See all you have to do is crossing that bridge to get to the beach!

Since it’s so hot on the beach, people bring a tent, etc.

You can pray here, or if you can go to the park near the beach. They’re totally fine with that so you don’t have to worry.

Jelly fish!!

Okay, I think that’s all for my review. see you tomorrow!
