    I don't know how far it is, but there is a nice semi-large secluded beach close to Iwakuni, and there is a nice clean one, albeit smaller one on the top of Chugoku-ken, maybe called Ooshima?

    I didn't read the whole thread, so sorry if anyone's mentioned it, but there's a beach on the south-west end of Lake Biwa that's great. It's better in the off season. Of course, it's fresh water, not sea water, but you'd never know you're not at the ocean otherwise as the lake is so big.
    You can camp there and there's a bar right on the beach too, but it's only open in high summer, which is unfortunately when the crowds go there too.

    Looks like Fukui has some that look promising. Suisho-hama.
    I'll bet this one gets hella busy.

    There is no prefecture called Chuugoku.

    Fukuoka has Keya beach, I have never been but it might be pretty good as they hold a music festival thing there every year in the summer.

    Of course until that time it could be a complete shithole, I got no idea.

    I think if you're looking for clear blue water, you'll have little option but to go far south to the warmer areas of maybe or Shikoku or Kyushu.

    Although the water isn't anything spectacular, I recommend the beaches in Zushi (Kanazawa) or Shimoda (Shizuoka). Both have really clean sand and easy access in the summer (Shimoda has gorgeous scenery) but can become super packed so you need to get a spot early.

    I usually head to Zushi because it's not so far, and I like it.

    yeah, that's my plan. I'm trying to plan a trip down there and i'm looking for the best beach possible.

    Thanks for your help so far everyone, I've got a few good leads now.

    to add to what wicket said, the entire west side of lake biwa in shiga is beautiful. there is the place in omi-maiko that she is talking about that is nice with shops and beach bars and camping and such but just about anywhere on that side of the lake is nice sand and blue water. i like to ride my scooter up and down that side of the lake and find new places all the time. like this.

    Ditto on clear blue water in the Seto Inland. Come summer, the water around here looks like it's straight out of a Caribbean vacation advertisement brochure.

    It's too cold about 360 days out of the year. Unless you're a beast like DPV, then temperature doesn't matter.

    Not sure, but the air temp is like 60-65 in the summer and there's 30mph winds at all times.

    There are a lot of nice beaches hidden in the inaka along the San-In coast of the Sea of Japan. Every summer I spend a lot of time at Takeno beach, in northern Hyogo, which is smallish but has nice sand and clean water. There are some bigger beaches in Tottori that are pretty nice, with lots of good surfing. Every summer (I think it`s the weekend of July 4th this year) there`s a great big "San-In Beach Party" in Tottori, with tons of people and music and drunken revelry.
