Miura Beach: Kawazu-Zakura



Miura Beach is one of the nearest beaches from Tokyo and attracts many people during summer. Moreover, it is also famous for Kawazu-zakura, which bloom earlier than normal Sakura (Somei-yoshino). Kawazu-zakura are charactelized by its deep pink colores and full bloom lasts longer than Somei-yoshino (from mid February to early March).

Miura beach is located on Tokyo Bay side of Miura Peninsula, Kanagawa. Miura-Kaigan station (Keikyu line) is the nearest station. From Shinagawa station, it only takes 1 hour.

Just after exit from Miura-Kaigan station, you can see Kawazu-zakura at the station square. During blooming period, Miura Beach Cherry Blossom Festival is held around the place and local products are sold in front of Miura-Kaigan station.




Kawazu-zakura are located along the Keikyu-line.

You can enjoy Kawazu-zakura together with Nanohana. The contrast between pink and yellow is very beautiful.













From the pedestrian bridge, you can look over Kawazu-zakura. If you are lucky enough, you can see train cars passing through Kawazu-zakura.




Around the area, you can see Mt. Fuji and vegetable farms.










Miura city is also famous for Tuna fishery and beautiful natures. I’ll introduce them on another post.
