Sazu

Guide Recommend

A feature of the Sazu seashore is that there is no breakwater on the 700m sand beach. The natural seashore landscape still remains. You can see the mechanism of an island linked to the land, island mountain, and sand bar at a glance from the observatory Uomidai in the highest point. Mikawa Gongen located upstream of the Sazu River is one of the three greatest Gongens (an avatar of Buddha), and many visitors come to the festival on May 3.
