|Hiroshima-ken Takehara-shi Takeharachou and Minatomachi
Matoba Beach is located 2.2km south east of Takehara train station.
The beach is divided into 2 parts. The east part is easily accessible from public road, while the west part is isolated by a small hill with only a walk path leading to it.
In 2011, a typhoon caused landslide which destroyed the foot path. Local authority erected fences to prevent people from using the walk path for safety reason. A second land slide later destroyed part of those fences.
I need to take a few photos in the west part, and wait for nearly a year for the authority to repair the foot path, but it seems it will not be repaired any time soon.
The only remaining option is to do a bit of rock climbing to bypass part of the fences and the destroyed walk path. Fortunately there is not any problem at all since the weather is fine.
The nearest train stations are Takehara station and Oonori station of JR Kure Line.
