  • Best place for me to have a swim and to get some sunny time in Hokkaido, also, never forget the service, they provide you with the bbq stuff and water and all what yoy have to pay is parking which is 700¥ 😍
  • Thursday 23 July thru Friday 24 July, 2020 Spent 2 days and a night on this sea beach campsite. Long beach, loads of people and families with tents, tarps, bbqs. There are a couple of places you can have a shower for 300 yen or so. One or two places to get food and drink too.. one place that did showers, and served food and drink, called ウェーブ (pronounced WHERE-BOO .. transliteration of English "WAVE"), had a few tables and chairs, and operated from about 10am till 6.30pm. The day we arrived, the sea was choppy and off limits, but next morning a section of it was deemed safe for swimming, so we did. Nice temperature. People of all ages had a dip, kids with inflatables included. The beach is reasonable sand, not stones. As it's sand, I think really good solid tent pegs are advisable. We had standard tent pegs which I wouldn't have held at all in the wind. A kind fellow camper gave us some cheap white canvas bags to fill with sand, and these served as weights at the end of the guy ropes/lines.. really effective. Great place not far from Otaru.
