  • In Ishikawa Prefecture just outside the capital city of Kanazawa is the Noto Satoyama Highway, a coastal road that follows the Sea of Japan to the Noto Peninsula.

  • This highway takes you to the Chirihama Nagisa Driveway, the only spot  in Japan where cars can drive on the beach.

  • Okay, I guess you can take your car or bike on this road.

  • This is crazy!

  • Wow, check  it out.

  • I'm like in the ocean here.

  • Awesome!

  • Yeehaw, you can drive on the beach. That is amazing.

  • Oh, okay, oncoming traffic.

  • So, you got to keep to the left in Japan.

  • Two-way lane here I guess.

  • Very smooth road and a beautiful day just looking out into the Japan sea there.

  • Oh, there's a 30 kilometer speed limit here.

  • That's reasonable.

  • And I guess at different points, there's ways to get back onto the main road.

  • Even a restroom area here.

  • It's a bit bumpy here, but this would be one of the exit points.

  • So, it was definitely smoother before, but it's still pretty smooth.

  • We'll just keep goingsee how far it goes, I guess.

  • It's the direction I'm going anyways.

  • Back to Kanazawa City this way.

  • Okay, so that's the end, and that becomes a beach there, so It's closed off just for a regular beach.

  • And then you can either go back one more time or head back to the highway.   

  • I think I'm gonna have to jump in forswim, so let's park the car somewhere.

  • It's a beautiful spot, and driving your car on the beach makes the experience that much more fun

  • If you don't have a car of your own, there seems to  be a taxi service that can take you for the drive

  • Thank you for watching. Please likesubscribe, share, and feel free to comment.
