Geography

Kujukuri Beach extends in the shape of an arc from Cape Gy˘bumi in Asahi to the north to Cape Tait˘ in Isumi, Chiba Prefecture to the south. The beach is relatively straight, in contrast to the typically irregular coastlines of Japan. The coastal region of the beach is the north-eastern end of Kuroshio Current influence in Japan. The tides and the Kuroshio Current create sand deposits along the length of the beach which form sand dunes of 4 metres (13 ft) to 6 metres (20 ft). Kujukuri Beach has no reef.
