The breathtaking Tanesashi Coast in the Sanriku Fukko National Park offers dynamic nature and accessible adventures

VISIT HACHINOHE, Aomori Prefecture



Experience a new side of Japan by exploring the breathtaking Tanesashi Coast in Japan’s far north. Away from the bustling megacities yet still accessible, the Tanesashi Coast in Hachinohe, Aomori Prefecture, is the entrance to the Sanriku Fukko National Park and the start of the 1,000-km-long Michinoku Shiokaze Trail. The coast is famous for its dynamic scenery, which changes between soft sandy beaches, craggily dramatic cliffs, and windswept pine groves. It begins at Kabushima Shrine, a beautiful shrine that seems to float above the ocean, and ends at the Tanesashi Natural Lawn, a picturesque area of sprawling grass that runs right up to the crashing waves. Hiking the coastline with a guide is a great way to enjoy all the local stories and secrets of the trail. After hiking, treat yourself to a fresh seafood lunch made at the local fisherman's wharf, or settle into a once in a lifetime glamping experience, where you can enjoy sightseeing views of the coastline while being pampered to a gourmet meal featuring local, seasonal ingredients.


How to get there


From Tokyo Station, take the Tohoku Shinkansen to Hachinohe Station (about 2 hours and 45 minutes). From Hachinohe Station, take the Hachinohe Line to Tanesashi-Kaigan Station (about 40 minutes).
