surf in the Japanese rising sun empire surf destination

Japan, the land of the Samurai, sushi and Doraemon unveils its best kept secret: THE SURF.

A travel guide to the country of the rising swell.

If you are thinking about your next exotic surf destination, you are in the right place; Japanese island is an island full of surprises and with better surf than you could imagine.


From Europe there is no lowcost airline that come to Japan, but you can use search engines for destinations or combination that can lower a bit the price of the ticket.

Where they can find a rebate, it is in the luggage: many Asian airlines do not charge for the carriage of the table.

Learn to invest those at least 300 € in other pursuits like sushi or kimonos.


To decide which is the best time to travel extensively we wanted to summarize the weather of the seasons:

Summer – early summer are rainy season on the island.

With overcast skies in the area of Honshu and surroundings and constant rain.

The climate is similar to Mediterranean, warm and humid.

Fall- the best time for surfing in Japan.

Summer rains have settled the gravel and sandbars and rocks in the river mouths and typhoons begin to pull away west Pacific.

Temperatures are softened and off-shores morning are usual.

The hordes of summer surfers have returned to their places and the peaks are more at ease.

Typhoons usually leave a good swell which makes the surf at this time a delight.

Winter- During this season the chilling and cold fronts from Siberia across the Sea of Japan arrives.

The surf conditions are variable, the wind swell period is short and usually sneak a typhoon last minute.

Japanese tend to avoid the winter and take the opportunity to go down to Gold Coast in Australia or the Northern coast of Hawaii.

Possibly the worst season spring- surf in Japan.

The water is frozen and the swell is minimal.

The rainy season begins to appear and wind swell periods are short.

With the exception of islands like Nijima, Tokyo prefecture, conditions are generally quite abhorrent.


In water, there are many troubling risks rather than industrial waste and pollution that can be found in the near Tokyo and Osaka seas.

The beaches of these areas are filthy with debris from fishing and plastic waste among others.

Sharks do not usually visit the coast of Japan, although it is known that the mouths of rivers are attractive for these creatures of God, and the Japanese are not going to be an exception.

JAPANESE surfers

Japanese locals are of the most relaxed and rolled surfers communities.

They are friendly, polite and often show interest in you to enjoy.

If you are an antisocial that prefer to rent your car and learn on your own, you’ll have difficult; car rentals are expensive, and the signs are in Japanese, and unless your geek level by the sleeve is at level 10, It is difficult to understand.

Before your new eternal friendship with a Japanese is forged, traveling by train is economically acceptable and connections are good.

For a first contact, the wave of Chiba and especially the surfing community around is a good start to begin creating ties.


Izu Shirohama: A beach break with waves similar to those you can find in Australia.

The beauty of the beach comes with its white sand and blue waters.

A good getaway Tokyo, especially if there is a typhoon swell and a good sandbar.

Kitaizumi (Fukushima): I Used to be a perfect left, beach break, funny, but since the earthquake, this wave breaks has been abandoned and alone.

Nijima (Habushi Beach): Nijima Tokyo is an island that with the right swell picks up the force of the ocean breaking on sand tubes.

Miyazaki (Southern Japan): At the point of sale Ichiyumi a pretty good wave.

Reef break, with lefts and rights depending on the swell.

It is good walls and a few tubes.

This works very well with the swells that come with typhoons.

Chiba Wada, Ohara: A family atmosphere and a consistent and fun wave.

Amami Oshima (Kagoshima): Bira Reef, an excellent wave to goofies and regulars.

In the form of A (or peak party) goes for both sides.

On rock bottom and with a strong take-off tube is normally closed.

Pipeline is Japanese.


Tokyo is an amazing futuristic city, with an ancient culture that has not been tainted by outside influence.

Do yourself a favor and go up to a Hatobus to explore the city.

For about 80 € (12,000 JYN) you can visit the Tokyo Tower, Imperial Palace and drinking green tea served by women dressed in her kimono.

Although you feel like a tourist on the bus with the approval of Mike and Pam pestle next, soon you will be captivated by the architecture and urbanism Japanese.


There are so many things to see in Japan that is difficult to list each one of them.

It is best to plan the trip by area: Hokkaido, Tohoku, Kanto, Chubu, Kansai, Shikoku, Chugoku, Kyushu and Okinawa.

Each houses amazing cities, beautiful landscapes, monuments that are true works of art and a host of experiences waiting.
