◎Comment from the captains
(Captain Kawaguchi)
The landscape of Uradome Beach is the most beautiful when the sun shines after the rain has stopped. It is as if the earth has refreshed itself and is breathing.
(Captain Tai)
The Sea of Japan has varied expressions—sometimes gentle and calm, sometimes angry and stormy with large waves rolling toward the shore. Uradome Beach has its special beauty even when the sea is raging. A magnificent creation of Mother Nature, Uradome Beach features plenty of breathtakingly spectacular landscapes.
(Captain Tamura)Our small boat, the Uradome, travels through the narrow waterways not accessible by usual island-hopping boats. When the sea is calm, our boat tour will take you through caves and cave tunnels, an adventurous experience unique to our geopark. Enjoy overwhelming views of the islands from up close.
(Captain Hori)
The refreshing and dynamic landscapes of Uradome Beach are particularly moving when seen from the boat. Enjoy the beauty of Uradome Beach, which changes its expression day by day.
(Captain Niimi)
On Uradome Beach, you can see seagulls, black-tailed gulls, wild cormorants, and many other wild animals depending on the season. If you are lucky, you can even see wild dolphins. During our boat tour, enjoy looking for and seeing many wild animals with your own eyes.

◆Kyoto Tango Railway (KTR) Sightseeing Trains: “Tango Akamatsu,” “Tango Aomatsu,” and “Tango Kuromatsu”

 

“Tango Akamatsu” travels along the Japan Sea coast and “Tango Aomatsu” passes through Mt. Oeyama. These two trains have a retro exterior and a warm and woody interior. Inspired by landscapes with white sand and green pines found along the Kyoto Tango Railway, such as the famous pine-covered sandbar Amanohashidate, these trains were designed under the theme of pine trees. The “Tango Kuromatsu” train provides three tour packages with dishes, drinks, and sweets made from ingredients available in the localities through which it travels. These trains will promise you pleasant trips in which you can fully enjoy the beauty of Tango.
