Hanazono Beach

Dates of Operation: June 5 - October 31, 2021
Bookings will open around the end of March 2021

Hanazono Beach

New in 2020 will be Hanazono Beach, a picturesque lake area in Hanazono that is perfect for calm water paddling, relaxing, fishing, and taking in the surroundings. Hanazono Beach is a great starting point for guests who wish to get in the water and have fun without the fear of strong river currents or waves in the ocean.

Surrounding the lake will be multiple spots for anyone to relax, play and have picnics on, making it a great place for families to spend the day. Right nearby will be the tree trekking area of Hanazono Forest, so kids can stay engaged with another outdoor activity nearby after they’ve explored the water.

I can’t swim - should I participate in Hanazono Beach activities?

If you wish to do SUP or Fun Kayaking, we strongly recommend only staying in parts of the lake that you can stand up in, in case of a fall. SUP is more difficult than Fun Kayaking since falling into the water is possible. If guests are concerned then we recommend having fun with Baitfishing on the shore or fun kayaking near the edge of the shore, away from the deep center. Life jackets are provided for all Hanazono Beach activities to ensure safety.
