This is Unohama Hot Springs. The home of Joetsu Relaxation
Unohama Beach boasts a wide, sandy beach with top rated clean water.
This is a popular resort beach with hot springs, which gets crowded in the summer months with visitors from within and outside the prefecture.
Watching the sun set into the Sea of Japan behind the statue of a mermaid after a day at the beach is superb.
