A gem of scenic beauty recognized as both one of Japan's Top 100 Beaches and Japan's Top 100 Evening Suns, this coastal area features natural artistry in the form of tidal flats created by the ebb and flow of the ocean. There are only 10 days a year when the low tide coincides with sunset, and photographers from around the world gather here seeking that one miraculous moment.
