Shinwakaura (新和歌浦) is a small town located south of Wakayama Prefecture.
Before the summer officially started last year (2016), we made a trip to a place called Shinwakaura which I accidentally found on google map.
It’s easier and cheaper than going all the way to Shirahama.
Just take a bus (和歌山) from JR Wakayama Station and stop at the last stop. The beach area is just a few minutes from there.
Since summer has not officially started, there are no stores stall up yet and most all barely anyone.
I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a crowded during the summer.
