Charms of Minamiboso (19) Hojo Beach


A few minutes walk from JR Tateyama station West exit takes you to Hojo Beach. Besides being popular for marine sports, such as wind surfing and SUP; the beach is a well known “photogenic” spot, with palm trees contrasting against a blue summer sky, Mt. Fuji with it’s snow cap on a crisp clear winter morning, or the gorgeous vermillion sunset over the horizon. The bay is called Kagamiga-ura, or Mirror Bay, in reference to its calm nature.
