Cape Irago, located at the tip of the Atsumi Peninsula, faces both Mikawa Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Koijigahama Beach is a beautiful sand beach associated with the legend of the noble couple’s love story, and it is selected as one of the ‘sacred spots for the couple’ as a suitable place to make a marriage proposal. The sand beach stretches for about 1 kilometer from the chalky Cape Irago Lighthouse to the Hii Stone Gate. At this beach, you might see some couples walking along the edge of the water, and others putting a padlock wishing their wish fulfilled. In the whole area, shops selling coconut juice, local specialty ‘big clam’ and souvenir shops stand side by side. You can enjoy casual stroll enjoying a view of the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
