Jodogahama is one of most popular beaches in this area.
It is located 3 km east of the center of Miyako city.
In Japanese, the first "o" in the word is pronounced long, and it is read as "Jôdogahama".

A small rocky peninsula about 700 meters long extends into the sea, and a beautiful beach spreads along the inlet behind the peninsula.

It looks like a Japanese garden.

"Jodogahama" means "a beach in Pure Land where Buddha lives".
It is said that a Buddhist priest saw this beautiful scenery and he said so in the 17th century.
