Directions to Shipwreck Beach

Geo Coordinates to the big parking area  N 40* 58.048      E 141* 13.312
Geo Coordinates to the ship wrecks N 40* 57.292        E 141* 12.794

Great place for a picnic, a beach stroll, to hunt for sea glass and to find glass floats (we've found six big ones).


  • Turn left at first stop light out POL Gate (heading to Hwy 338).
  • Proceed to Circle K (on right at 2nd stop light).  (18.8 Km from our home)
  • Turn left (north) at Circle K. 
  • Continue on this road until it intersects with Hwy 338 - Turn left (north)
  • Continue on Hwy 338 until you reach Circle K on the left at a stop light (27 klicks from our house). 
  • Turn left on Hwy 5 - follow it until it T's with hwy 279 on Mutsu Bay (you'll pass the old Hwy 279)
  • Turn right (north) on Hwy 279 - pass through several small villages
  • Look for a large green fence on the left with big piles of white shells (note construction is done - think fence is gone too). 
  • Turn left directly after the fence to walk down to ships or....
  • Proceed to a dirt parking area on the right, directly before Hwy 279 crosses the rail road tracks. This is a safe spot to park and is a nice walk to the ships (head left after you get to the beach). 
  • Take Hwy 8 out of Misawa
  • Turn Right (North) on hwy 4 towards Noheji
  • Turn Right (North) on hwy 279

Choosing Joy!
