Part of both “Japan’s top 55 swimming spots” as well as “Japan’s top 100 sunset views,” Senjojiki Kaigan Beach is a rocky beach that rose up into existence due to an earthquake in 1792 (the fourth year of the Kansei era). The surrounding area features countless unusually shaped rock formations. The jagged rocks jut out of the water for a seemingly endless stretch spanning roughly 12 kilometers. With its unique rock formations and beautiful waters, Senjojiki Kaigan Beach is a Mecca for both swimming and camping. It is said that a lord of the Tsugaru Domain, attracted to the unusual scenery, once laid out a thousand tatami mats along the coast for a massive banquet. And during the Hansei Period, it is said that the spot was reserved as a sort of summer resort for feudal lords, therefore inaccessible for normal folks. In the present day, visitors can go to the Senjojiki Center to begin their tour of the beautiful region. The “Resort Shirakami” cruising train runs slowly along the Gono Line tracks, offering a comprehensive view of the Senjojiki area. Please consider visiting this unique area to enjoy a scene only nature could create.
