Heading to Atashika Beach and preparing for our camping tools (tents, foods, swimming gears) were time-consuming but all worth it when you arrived at your destination!
We always thought to drop by to this inland beach in Kumano when we are going to visit in-laws and been keen to take a dip with the so-called, Japan’s cleanest beach in the south! Atashika! Now we can experience you, at last! The place Atashika Beach (新鹿海水浴場 Atashika Kaisui Yokujō) is in between Owase and Kumano. Surrounded by scenic views of the mountains and has magnificent waves that can make surfers go for a day! Caution also for swimmers for the strong currents may sweep you away further, so play with a caution of course!
Since it was just days ago when that powerful typhoon hit us, the winds are quite fierce during the time. So after eating lunch, we decided to keep our camping gears (tents and all) and off we went to the beach.
