Jodogahama Beach (浄土ヶ浜, Jōdogahama, lit. “Pure Land Beach”) is a beautiful beach just outside of central Miyako City in Iwate Prefecture. It is one of the more famous tourist sites along the Sanriku Coast and part of the Sanriku Recovery National Park. Jodogahama features a beautiful white pebble shoreline and clear, calm waters punctuated by jagged, rocky islands. This memorable landscape invokes images of the “Pure Land”, a Buddhist concept of paradise, which the beach derives its name from.
