Utsumi Beach on the Chita Peninsula Near Nagoya

UtsumiBeach1They say Utsumi Beach has the finest sand in the world, but probably only the Japanese say that. It is a great beach though, is well known throughout the Tokai region for its beauty.

Its 1.6km length is a nice bow shape, and you can rent parasols and buy beer, drinks, and food just off the sand. I have been a few times when DJs were playing, and there was no shortage of people enjoying the music. The beach is crowded, but well worth the trip. What are you doing this weekend??

August is the best time to visit this beach, and people flock to see the fireworks and other events that are held at that time; beware though!  September is Jelly Fish season!  You do NOT want to get stung!

  • By Train –  Meitetsu Chita Shinsen Line from either Nagoya Station or Kanayama – about 1 hour. It is a 20 minute walk from Utsumi Station to the beach.  A taxi will cost less than 1000 yen.
  • By Car 7 minutes by car from Minamichita IC on the Chita Peninsula Expressway.
