Sand Dollar Beach | Aomori Pref., Japan



The weather has finally warmed up a bit, and that means going exploring the local beaches around here! (there's quite a few)

One of my favorite things to do in Japan is to go beach combing to see what kind of treasures I can find.

Is it a whole lot easier to just buy sea shells, sand dollars, star fish and glass floats instead of spending hours looking for them?

Sure it is, but where's the fun in that?

Not to mention, frolicking around in the sand burns a ton of calories so...double win.


Today we ventured off to a beach called "Sand Dollar Beach," and it's filled with...you guessed it-

sand dollars!

Although many of them were broken, we still managed to find a handful that weren't.

It continues to blow my mind how nature manages to draw the perfect little flower on these dollars every time!


I swear the sand here changes colors because upon entering the beach, it was almost black and sparkly. As we ventured a little further it started to lighten up a bit.

Now I wouldn't recommend going swimming here because A.) the water is way too cold, and

B.) the waves are way too strong, but it still makes for a nice little getaway.


I will link the vlog from our time here as soon as it's up on YouTube, but in the meantime, feel free to check out some more photos below:
