A Day Out in Saka Town

You can reach Saka easily by car or train from Hiroshima City or Kure City.
There are all sorts of fun things to do on Saka’s sandy beach and in the surrounding hills.

Bayside Beach Saka
JR Mizushiri Station on the Kure Line is a stone’s throw away from Bayside Beach Saka - one of the longest beaches in western Japan. Whether you’re into watersports, beach sports or just relaxing with friends, Bayside Beach Saka is the place to come for a fun day at the seaside. It’s comfortable and convenient too, with changing rooms and bathroom facilities dotted along the entire length of the 1,200-meter-long beach.

Restaurant Carib
A great place to come if you want a pleasant view of the sea with your lunch or dinner.
Carib’s head chef creates original menus with seasonal ingredients. Because the menu changes with each season, no two visits to Carib will ever be the same.

Zenpan Bagels
This bagel shop only opened nine years ago, but it has become one of the most popular bakeries in the region. People travel from neighboring prefectures to get their hands on Zenpan’s delicious creations. The owner, Oride-san, only uses the highest quality ingredients to make his signature bagels that are both tasty and healthy. This charming little shop is well worth a visit. They also accept orders online.
