‘Jodogahama’ literally means Paradise Beach. In the 1700s, a Buddhist priest known as Reikyo was so moved by the natural beauty of this place that he named it after ‘Jodo’, the ultimate paradise of Pure Land Buddhism.
Experience a moment of spiritual paradise that you’ll never experience anywhere else, as you watch the sunrise over the quiet beach, accompanied by dramatic echos of local Taiko drumming performers ‘Abare-Taiko’. After a captivating performance, enjoy a bowl of warm soup or a light meal as you take-in early morning views of the picturesque bay.
*Program may be cancelled due to rain / unfavourable weather conditions.
Available only on Sundays from April 1 to April 30 and September 1 to October 31.
The listed time schedule is for April and October. In the case of September, each is advanced by 15 minutes.
