Osaka: Nishikinohama Beach Park

Located in Kaizuka City in Osaka Prefecture in Japan, Nishikinohama Beach Park is a popular beach and park destination for people living in the city because of its easy accessibility.

The name Nishikinohama came from the name nishiki which means two colors. This refers to the white-ish color of its beach and the green color of the pine groves around the park.

The park is well known for the ship mast that was erected near the beach. It is usually crowded from July to August as visitors usually flock the place to enjoy the weather. Moreover, there are also facilities for cooking barbecues, biking, and jogging in the park. Other activities that you could do in the Beach Park is the usual sun bathing, snorkeling, shell collecting and playing sports like beach volleyball and frisbee.

Kids would also enjoy the well maintained playground in the park area. Couples on the other hand would enjoy strolling while admiring the scenic beauty of the park and the kilometer long beach. Not to mention, Nishikinohama Beach Park is also the best place to watch the sun set in Osaka Bay.

We visited Nishikinohama Beach Park during out 12th day of stay in Japan. As usual, our Japanese family brought us there by surprise. My daughter was the one who enjoyed this beautiful destination the most. As a matter of fact we stayed in the playground area for quite some time (my wife and I enjoyed the slide by the way). After letting my daughter play around and get tired , we went to the beach area and enjoyed the view. We also collected sand and shells for my sand collection back home. We didn't swim though because it was winter season when we visited (It was sunny though but the wind was chilly)

Overall, Nishikinohama Beach Park is a great place to visit if you want a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Getting there:

Ride the Nankai Electric Railway and board down at Nishikinohama Station. From there, the beach park is just a ten-minute walk away.
