About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Shirahama Fireworks, Shirahama-cho, Nishimuro-gun Wakayama Prefecture

Shirahama (白浜) is a well developed onsen (hot spring) resort 100 kilometers south of Osaka. Its popularity as an entertainment destination and its proximity to Osaka caused Shirahama to become one of Japan's three biggest onsen resorts, along with Beppu on Kyushu and Atami on the Izu Peninsula.

The name Shirahama is Japanese for "white beach", and refers to the resort's other major attraction, a 500 meter long sand beach. Many large hotels are situated around the beach so that visitors will be just a few steps from the water. Nightly fireworks are held during summer.

Along the Shirahama coastline, Mother Nature has used the roaring Pacific Ocean to create some rather avant-garde art installations, such as the spiky, jagged cliffs of Sandanbeki .

Stop At: Senjojiki, Shirahamacho, Shirahama-cho, Nishimuro-gun 649-2211 Wakayama Prefecture

Stroll out to sea on the smooth stones of Senjojiki's "one thousand tatami mats"

Over the millennia, waves of the Pacific Ocean have continually crashed into the Wakayama coastline, creating spectacular clusters of jagged rock formations. The surfaces, however, are completely smooth, allowing for an unusual coastal hike.
