Nagata Inakahama, Yakushima-cho

Take in the unspoiled beauty of the white sand beach at Nagata Inakahama, a quiet stretch of coast with clear waters and picturesque views. Go for a walk or swim, snap some photos, and relax on the sand. One of the main highlights here happens between May and August: at night, you can witness the rare loggerhead turtle coming ashore to lay its eggs. In one of nature's most interesting life cycles, around 500 turtles visit here each year, the same beach they were born on 10 to 20 years prior.

  • Sea turtles are spawning in season from mid-June onwards. So I just looked at the beautiful sandy beach, but i could see the mouth nagarabe island floating in the East China Sea, there was no garbage on the sandy beach, just looking at it with a bo, but it was enough scenery to reset the mind.

  • Wide wide white sand beach. It's so beautiful that i'm going to be silent for a while. I could see The Island of Kunorebe in the distance, and the smoke of the eruption was rising. It seems that sea turtles come to lay eggs, and there is an area of the prohibition. There seems to be a protection activity, too. The place to stay by the sea is also the place to come next time.
