Amachan Location Tour : Ride to Kosode Coast

Iwate Provincial Road 268

At the beginning of 268, the road is wide. It’s quite easy to ride here.

The hardest point is the hill which needs quite strong legs. Since I rode an electric assisted bicycle. It’s easier for me to ride pass it.

Funato Tunnel

Rode downhill and found a small beach named Funato before entering the tunnel with the same name. You can swim in this area but there are no people doing this at the time I visited. Maybe the wave was too strong.

I found this sign when I exited the tunnel. It warns if there is rain, this road ahead should be avoided. Luckily the weather was OK when I rode on this road. Just a little cloudy.

The coast road is large enough for small cars to drive past each other. Bicycle rider needs to be more careful although most Japanese cars won’t try to pass you.


On the way to the destination, you will see Tsurigane-dou. It’s a natural made cave. In the past there is the bell shape stone inside the cave. So the cave was named after it. But now the rock is disappeared.

Kosode Coast Meoto-iwa

Finally saw Meoto-iwa and the iconic small lighthouse which appears in the drama.

Kosode Fishing Union

The first building you will see when reaching the destination is Kosode Fishing Union. The organization similar to the one in the drama.

Kosode Coast

I arrived at the port area and saw staffs who directed tourist cars to park in the parking lot. I left my bicycle here.

Next time I will write about Amachan filming locations in the port area and Ama’s sea urchin fishing. Please look forward to it.
