At the south end of Rikuzentakata city area and at the bottom of the large Hakata Bay in the south, there is a large Yumihama of about 2.5km east to west made of earth and sand carried by the Kesen River.
About 1.8 km west of this sandy beach constitutes the magnificent graceful Matsubara of the Japanese black pine with pines, and is valuable as one of Japan's few Matsubaras.
Under the forest of Matsubara, beach plants such as Hama-pea, Hama-bou-fu and Kobo-omu-gi paint a sandy beach.
