Japan is not what comes to mind when you think about beaches. But in my recent trip to explore the lovely Kamakura, a daytrip from Tokyo, I had the most pleasant surprise. Near Hase was Yuigahama Beach, a lovely stretch of beach that made for some especially lovely photography.
After a bit of Instagraming using my mobile :
Offers a nice break from the temple tours of the area. Lots of food options on the beach, if you’re feeling like grabbing a bite while staring at the ocean horizon.
If you want more beaches in that area – Japan Guide has a good summary of all the Kamakura beaches.
