The Top 6 Beaches Near Tokyo

Tokyo is not necessarily the first place you think about when planning a beach holiday- but you should think again.

Just outside of the mega metropolis of Tokyo, on the eastern edge of the city, lies the stunning Boso Peninsula. Here you will find entrancing mountainous terrain, lush forest, abundant wildlife and gorgeous beaches.

It’s the perfect place to escape the wonderful madness of the world’s largest cityscape, and after an approximate 1.5 hour drive you can be sitting in the sun on any one of these incredibly sandy spots.

Make sure you book a room at any of the Prince Hotel Tokyo locations, handily spread across the city. Not only will you be living in luxury and enjoying the many amenities offered by these stunning hotels, but you’ll also be able to travel with great ease from each location.

Take the Tokyo Bay Shiomi Prince Hotel for example. It’s perfectly located on one of the islands in the gigantic Tokyo Bay, and right next to the Shiomi Train Station, that directly links the city centre to the Boso Peninsula; perfect! 

Now let’s take a look at the very best beaches within easy reach from the city of Tokyo. 

Maebara Beach

This stunning stretch of sand is one of the biggest and best in Japan.

There is an ocean promenade where you can shop for food, souvenirs, and experiences. You’ll also find plenty of water based activities, and the stunning blue water makes this an amazing spot for swimming.

Just along the coast you’ll find the gorgeous Isomura harbour where you can shop for beautiful fresh seafood at wholesale prices. 

From the Grand Prince New Takanawa Tokyo this stunning kilometre and a half of golden sand is an easy train ride away.

Shirosaki Beach

Shirosaki Beach is one home to some of the clearest waters on the entire Boso Peninsula.

The waves are calm so it’s great for swimming, especially with kids, and despite its incredible reputation it is also known for being one of the quietest beaches- even on beautifully sunny days.

Shirosaki offers activities for all, and getting there from your room in the Sunshine City Prince Hotel Ikebukuro, Tokyo is an easy thing to achieve; so get out there!

Uchiura Beach

Uchiura is yet another incredibly quiet, but stunningly beautiful spot.

Found in a quiet little fishing town this beautiful beach is the perfect place for peace and swimming. In the warmer months there is an inflatable aquatic park set up for kids, or if you fancy some privacy then walking along the bay and finding a private spot to swim is a great way to go.

Okitsu, Moriya & Ubara Beaches

 This series of bays is amongst the very best on offer anywhere in Japan.

Crystal clear blue waters, rocky cliffs and stunning towns make up these three adjoining inlets, and any one of them would be a perfect way to spend a sunny day.

From your room in the stunning Prince Sakura Tower, Tokyo city centre you could be exploring these bays and more in just 2 hours on the train!

Boso Beaches

So there you have it; some of the best beaches on the Boso peninsula just outside of Tokyo.

Thanks to the amazing highways and world class public transport systems, exploring these stunning, rural locations is incredibly easy; even from your super central accommodation at the Tokyo Prince Hotel Park Tower.

Get out there and explore the crystal clear waters of the Pacific Ocean from the comfort of your inner city hotels.
