Hayama Morito Beach in Summer

Cozy, easy accessible retreat

By Tomoko Kamishima    - 1 min read

Hayama is a small town on the Miura Peninsula, Kanagawa. And it is a real retreat for both beach and mountain lovers. You can access Hayama by a 1-hour drive from central Tokyo. If you don’t drive, take the Yokosuka Line and get off at Zushi Station. Among the beaches in Hayama, Morito Beach is one that is very cozy and easy accessible. It takes about 15 minutes by bus from Zushi station (Morito Kaigan Bus Stop or Morito Jinja is the nearest stop) and a few seconds on foot.

During the summertime (July and August), there are many nice beach houses. Oasis is a 'live house' featured in this video.

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS:  An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here.  日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
