The tunnel brought me to Jodogahama Marine House where you can take a small fishing boat to see Blue Cave. One of attraction here.
Because I didn’t have much time for taking a tour. I only followed the trail to the beach while tried to avoid water splash from tides that hit the trail barrier.
The water splash can be avoided by don’t stay the wet part of the trail so long.
The island and sharp looking stones can be seen while walking along the trailed.
There is an overlook on the hill.
At the end of the trail you will see Jodogahama Beach and Jodogahama Rest House. You can use the toilet or buy food and drink here.
If you don’t want to take the trail like me, you can cycling here directly or get off the bus at the nearby bus stop.
It will hurt badly if you fall on the beach. Because it’s full of pebbles.
The name Jodogahama meaning is pure land. Buddhist monk Reikyo compares the vivid contrast of the sharp, white rocks, green pines, and deep blue sea of the beach with paradise or pure land.
I found from Iwate travel information website that people can swim here. But I didn’t see people did it. Maybe it hadn’t been summer yet or the tide looked pretty strong.
I was here to take photos until I thought it’s a leaving time. Then I walked back to Visitor Center to ride back to the station.
Next time I will write about a restaurant on a department store in Miyako. Please look forward to it.
