48.Jodogahama Beach

A Jodo beauty (Jodo means paradise or Elysium)

Enjoy the marvelous views of the land and sea

Jodogahama Beach is one of the greatest spots in Sanriku. The magma and volcanic activity 40 million years ago and the erosion by waves sculptured the land into a Jodo-like beauty, a beautiful landscape out of this world. Visitors can walk down the promenades, or cruise around the island on boats or on sappas (small fishing boats). Nearby, the Jodogahama Beach visitor center and the Fishery Science Museum of Iwate Prefecture are available. We recommend visitors to make use of these facilities to have a better understanding of Jodogahama Beach.
