One doesn't tend to think of the ocean or the beach when they think of Japan, but there are great beaches and coastlines here. This, the Uradome Coastline of Tottori Prefecture on the Sea of Japan has numerous white sand beaches and hidden swimming holes in secluded coves like this one. The water clarity here can also exceed 25 meters

Location: Uradome Coastline, Iwami-cho, Tottori Prefecture, Japan
