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.

Fun Kayak & SUP Rental


Choose your watercraft for a fun and safe paddle at Hanazono Beach. Cruise along the flat water with great views of the mountains in a lightweight Fun Kayak or test your balance on a Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP). You can even try something fun like SUP Yoga!

Switch between Kayak and SUP as much as you like within the rental period and multiple kayak sizes are available to suit each guest and their needs. Great exercise and fun for the whole family!

What to Wear

Hanazono recommends guests wear light, water-appropriate clothing such as swimmers with shorts and a rash top with river shoes or rubber clogs or lightweight clothes that can get wet.
Avoid jeans and heavy materials, and be sure to have appropriate sun protection like sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat and a long-sleeve shirt if possible.

For baitfishing, please wear shoes that you can move around easily in.

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.
