Beach holidays in Japan are becoming more and more popular, as people realise there’s more to the country than bustling cities and Mount Fuji. From Japanese beach resorts such as Shirahama Beach, where you can sunbathe all day long, to more natural spots like Kudaka Island, where you can see local wildlife while you catch some waves, there’s definitely a sandy spot in Japan that’s perfect for you.
