The Tanesashi coast offers many natural attractions such as the natural grass that grows to the water’s edge, the nakisuna (singing sand) that produce sounds when walking, and a vast grassy plain with many flowers and plants.
In May 2013, the coast was designated as part of Sanriku Fukko National Park, which was established to contribute to the reconstruction of Sanriku region after the Great East Japan Earthquake.
The coast is near the city center, making it easily accessible for local and visitors for trekking, swimming in the ocean, and surfing.
A walking trail is stretches along the coastal line and is a popular walking spot. For cyclists, electric bicycles with GPS and audio navigation are available for rent from spring to summer time.
Kabushima Island/Kabushima Shrine
Kabushima Island is a famous nesting location for black-tailed gulls. As black-tailed gulls are known to be monogamous, the Kabushima Shrine has become a place to pray for relationships and matchmaking.
