Oita | Paddleboarding at Matama Coast

Experience paddleboarding and picking up razor clams along the mudflats of Matama Coast

The Matama Coast stretches along the northern edges of Bungotakada facing the Suonada Sea and is famed for its unobstructed sunset views. The beach has smooth mudflats during low tide that reflect the sky, and the area is designated as one of the 100 best sunset-viewing spots in Japan. A guide to sunrise and sunset times appears on a sign in front of a cafe at one end of the beach. The cafe and rest area is a good location for photos. Water activities such as stand up paddleboarding and paddleboard yoga are available. Between March and May, the area is also a popular spot for picking up razor clams along the mudflats.
