Hot spring resort area

A hot spring resort area extends near Yuhigaura (the Hamazume Coast), a place noted as one of Japan's best 100 sunset locations. There are 16 inns and guest houses. During the winter season, inns in the Hamazume area attract visitors from Keihanshin by serving dishes of winter crabs.
With extensive promotion activities together with Kitsu-onsen Hot Spring and Kumihama, 'Amino Hamazume' has been widely known for its 'winter crabs.'

The nearby Yuhigaura Beach is crowded with sea bathers during the summer.

A sand bath can be enjoyed in some inns in the hot spring resort area.

An open-air spa is available in the nearby Kotobiki-hama beach, which is famous for sand that sounds like it sings.
