Atami Sun Beach is my favorite 'swim in the sea' day trip from Tokyo. The beach is nice, the water is clean, and there are many restaurants and shops nearby. For anyone who wants to stay overnight, there are countless hotels and ryokan - all with hot spring baths (Atami translates as 'hot ocean').
From Tokyo, it is a 40 minute ride by Shinkansen (4200 yen one way), or 110 minutes by JR Tokaido Line (2000 yen) to Atami Station. From there it is a 5 minute taxi or bus ride, or 15 minute walk (downhill) to the beach. @excursions_japan #japan #giappone #atami #shizuoka #beach #summer - 6 hours ago
