One of the most important features of Kamakura City is its coastline, located to the south of the city.
There are 5 beaches spanning the 7 km long coast: Zaimokuza Beach, Yuigahama Beach, Inamuragasaki Beach, Shichirigahama Beach, and Koshigoe Beach.
Among these beaches, Zaimokuza Beach is particularly long and shallow, with gentle waves. Because of this, it can get crowded with tourists who come to swim every year. We carry out “cleaning and maintenance activities,” “safety and security operations,” and “secondhand smoke prevention measures.”
During beach season, the staff from every beach shop in the beach area clean the beach in the early morning every day.
In addition, it is our aim to keep the beach safe and secure. To ensure the safety of beach visitors there are lifeguards who can perform monitoring/rescue within swimming zones, police on patrol from the nearest police station, and surveillance cameras installed along the coast. Through our efforts, and with the cooperation of the local residents, we stand as a united body dedicated to the safety and security of beach visitors.
