Japanese Summer Beach House Culture

Happy Go Lucky Beach House

Before I lived in Yokohama, I lived in Zushi. One of things I looked forward to each year was summer, when Zushi Beach, one of the finest beaches in the country, would instantly become alive with people from all over Japan arriving to soak up the sun. To provide services for all these people, beach houses were set up; over the years, these beach houses took on a life of their own and eventually became the reason why people would flock to Zushi beach each year.

One of the more popular beach houses is beach bar "Happy Go Lucky Beach House". During the short two month period of summer, their beach house becomes the main attraction at Zushi Beach. They invite you to come and enjoy this special time with them. The natural elements of the location, the ocean's calm soothing waves, a picturesque sunset every evening, and a majestic view of Mt. Fuji, will give you an experience like no other.

They have showers, changing rooms, lockers, lounge chairs, and parasols for rent. All facilities are ready for you to just come and jump in the ocean! They also have morning yoga lessons, massage and a broad range of complimentary music events on the weekend.

Their restaurant and bar prepares a variety of side dishes and hearty meals that will fill your hungry stomachs. If you are feeling thirsty, you can choose from their largest alcohol collection on the beach. From exotic drinks to standards, you name it, they’ve got it.

So go and get your beach on! Happy Go lucky will add that special spice to your special summer day. Tell them Lee sent you!

ACCESS

Only an hour away from Tokyo, take the JR Yokosuka Shonan Shinjuku Line bound for Zushi Station.

Exit at Zushi Station and walk straight towards the traffic light. Turn right at McDonalds onto Zushi Ginza shopping street.

When you come to a traffic light with a Seijo Drug Store on your right, go left and make a quick right at the next traffic light. Walk straight and you will eventually come to the entrance of Zushi Beach.

Happy Go Lucky is the third beach house to the right of the entrance.

Be safe and have fun!
