The Best Beaches All Over Japan — and the Rules You Should Know Before Visiting Them
Japan is an archipelago made up of 6,852 islands — albeit several that are just 3,000 feet in circumference. Even so, it has an astonishing 18,486 miles of coastline, putting it at the top of the list of shoreline-rich countries. (Only Canada, Greenland, Russia, Indonesia, and the Philippines have more, and of those, the first three have frigid waters.) That means that Japan is awash in wonderful beaches. It also has its very own, unique beach culture. On your next trip to Japan, make sure to include some beach time.
