Strolling the Beaches in Kamakura

Any time of the day; Any season of the year

By Larry Knipfing    - 1 min read

A walk to the beach from Kamakura Station takes about 10 minutes. And once you arrive, there's a lot to see and do. The beach is shaped like a horseshoe. On the far left is Zaimokuza Beach--the best place for windsurfing and for viewing Mt. Fuji. In the middle of the horseshoe is Yuigahama Beach, where most people hang out in summer. The far right beach, Hase Beach is quiet and calm and a great place to just chill out and enjoy the blue water, blue sky and sand on your feet. There are also a lot of fishing boats and fishing gear--equally fascinating and beautiful!

Born on Long Island, New York in 1958, I have spent the last 30+ years of my life living in Japan, and enjoying every minute of it! I especially love photography, and Japan is definitely one of the most beautiful places in the world to photograph! (Visit my online gallery) My other love is fiction writing and I have published quite a few books that take place in Japan. Fun stuff! You can find them at my Amazon Author's Page. In addition to my writing, I have mainly been working in the field of corporate training, and at the same time have done a lot of photography. *Kamakura, and now Yokohama (both in Kanagawa Prefecture) have been my home for almost twenty years and are perfect places for me: Hilly, situated on the water, and with amazing histories. The rest of Kanagawa is equally amazing and includes the great Hakone onsen and spa area.  *Tochigi Prefecture, with World Heritage site Nikko, is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and not far from Tokyo.  *Fukui Prefecture, located in central Japan on the coast of the Japan Sea, is brimming with classic Japanese culture and great natural beauty everywhere you look. I really look forward to sharing ALL of Japan's beauty and magic with all of you. Website: Contact me:
