Kisami-Ohama Beach, Shimoda, Izu

Fun for everybody at this gorgeous white sand beach

By Nicole Bauer    - 1 min read

Kisami-Ohama Beach near Shimoda is definitely my favorite beach in the area, and thanks to a direct train from Tokyo it makes it a fantastic weekend getaway. The waters are crystal clear, the sand is white and the beach has a very natural setting—no large road or big hotel spoil the view. A big Thank you to my husband Stefan who has agreed to share his pictures on this site!

Travelling abroad to discover new places, getting to know different cultures and learning foreign languages has always been my passion. I was born and raised in Germany; however, for a few years now I've been very lucky to be able to spend my life abroad. I lived for some time in England and Italy before moving to Japan in October 2009. It took me a while to adapt to this very different world; however, travelling up and down the country has helped me to not only adapt, but to actually fall in love with this country Japan. It has also reawakened my interest in photography, so whenever I get a chance I pack my camera and discover something new. Japan is full of beautiful but less well-known places. To make these more discoverable for everybody, I'm very happy to be able to share my stories and photography on this site, and open a world of extraordinary experiences, which would be difficult to find in a guidebook. For any queries regarding Tokyo as a travel destination or any of my published articles, please feel free to contact me.
