In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Mamashita Beach is a sunny stretch of coast flanked by towering cliffs, located along the southwest side of Niijima, one of Izu’s most scenic islands. Sitting around 160 kilometers south of Tokyo, this beach is about as far away from the neon lights and crowded streets of the city as you can get.
Swim, sunbathe and enjoy the serenity. When you’re done, head to the nearby Mamashita onsen and sand bath. Soak in the hot springs before trying out the unforgettable sand-bath experience. It’s said that being buried in the warm sand will rid your body of toxins and leave you feeling like you’ve just experienced a full body massage.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
