Beach Break: Onjuku Beach

Sponsored Links
I missed the beautiful beaches in the Philippines last summer, so I decided to give myself a beach break and headed towards Chiba - one of the popular beach destinations in Japan. There are several beaches in Chiba but I chose to go to Onjuku Beach because it seems like the most accessible of them all. I left Tokyo at around 11am and arrived in Onjuku Beach at around 2pm. It was a cloudy day but the beach was still full of people.

Onjuku Beach has fine gray sand and is popular with beachgoers and surfers alike. It may be far from the beaches I've gotten used to in the Philippines (which in my opinion is one of the best in the world) but this is a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo.
