Mikasahama Beach, Hatsukaichi

4.1
#1 of 6 in Beaches in Hiroshima Prefecture
Featuring a narrow strip of coarse yellow sand, Mikasahama Beach offers views of a "floating" torii, the famous sacred red gate of the Itsukushima sanctuary. During the day, there is hardly enough room on the sand to spread a couple of towels, but as the day goes by and the tide recedes, more people come to the beach to stroll along the shore and enjoy picturesque sunset views across the water to the Japanese mainland. Keep an eye open for the friendly deer that roam around the beach looking for food. To visit Mikasahama Beach and other attractions in Hatsukaichi, use our Hatsukaichi travel planner.

  • There is a taste and it is worth seeing respectively with the torii which sticks out to the water at the high tide which praises water, and the torii which rises in the beach at low tide. There was a sign that it was not necessary to take it because this place was a sacred place though the shellfish etc. might be able to be taken. When you visit Itsukushima Shrine, you want to stop once and get down at low tide and relax. This is a rare location that can be seen from the boat crossing from miyajima guchi and from the land of Miyajima. As of September 2019, Torii is undergoing restoration and will take another two to three years.

  • What is called a beach is only a sandy tongue that covers the land and is an accessible place when there is low tide but nothing more. Very disappointing photos deceive
