A very beautiful account, the dinner at deck is a masterful snap.


Three year old monkey boy, running and climbing and eating and smashing things flat. Someday he will appreciate the building up part, but not yet.


It's great to see new posts from you! I love to discover more about Japan, such a fascinating place.
You have the cutest little monkey child, he is adorable!


First time at a beach as a family? Don't you count the beaches in Thailand?
I never went to the beach in Chiba. Instead, we drove all the way from the bottom of Ibaraki, through a bit of Chiba, across Tokyo and into Kanagawa to get to Kamakura. Once we got there though, it was so nice I didn't want to leave.


Thanks Jsh, the dinner itself was masterful!

Joe, I can't wait for that day.

Thanks Caroline!

Oops David, I forgot to add the "in Japan" part. Fixed it, thanks! In my experience the beaches in Chiba are way nicer than in Kanagawa, but of course Kamakura is a very special place.


Shuma = Godzilla! Rawwwwwwwrrrrr! :D


That looks like a great break, even if it was less relaxing than pre-children. We have an almost 3 year old here too, so I can totally relate to the running / lack of sense in deep water / sandcastle destruction.


Hello!! I was going to write to you last July after taking a trip to Chiba and stayed at the beachside minshuku, Kinkaitei. It was so nice, so cool, I felt like we're not in Japan, jaja. Thank you so much for all the info, we had a great time. Two or three years ago when you posted we try to go but it was booked. So this year we finally went. we didn't stay in that beach. we went more south. the sand is no clean but in the other hand there were so few people. we're planning to go again this sunday but since the weather is not good we will not stay over night. Thank you for sharing and I hope you keep writing as I enjoy this blog.


Beatriz, I'm so glad you liked it! It is a very cool place, if only it was on a nicer beach. Definitely the beaches to the south are nicer, and there are some great ones. We've been trying to find one for over a decade that we came upon- not an official named beach, but just gorgeous. Big sand cliffs and no facilities, so no people. We found it once and have never been able to locate it again.

The beach I mentioned in this post, Haraoka, is pretty good. It doesn't look great in the pictures but at low tide it's great, and not too many people. Just one Umi-no-Ie, and it's not a rip-off- very good fries and the coldest beer I've ever had on a beach. Of course it's probably already been packed up for the year.
