Inakahama beach is a quiet beach in the northwest quadrant of Yakushima. It’s said that Yakushima gets 35 days of rain a month! Sunny days like this are rare occurrences.
You can’t miss this beach. Just take a drive around and you’ll eventually pass Inakahama beach. A complete drive round the island takes about 4-5 hours.
There’s a nice little rest area if you’re just driving pass and need a break.
Sea turtles come to lay their eggs in the summer. So the beach is off limits during the nights of May 1st till the 31st of August.
Just more photos of the beach.
The sand is not powder fine, but it’s a pretty nice beach.
The water looked so inviting I went in to cool my feet. ^^.
