Irino Beach is a beautiful area in Kochi, located on the quiet but scenic island of Shikoku. If you are less the city type and happen to be spending time in the less traveled areas of Japan, this irino beach would make a great summer spot. It is popular with locals as well as tourists for its surfing and camping possibilities. You can also catch a glimpse of baby turtles hatching and going into the sea at sunrise from August to September!

Surrounded by blue sky and pine woods, this 4km-beach, likened to a museum holds various events including well-known unique ones like the bare foot marathon and the T-shirt art exhibition. Designated as one of Japans Most Beautiful Beaches, Irino Beach is proud of its magnificent old pine groves and rich natural environment where some 5,000 loggerhead turtles hatch yearly.
