(HER ●) We decided to go to Zushi beach. A beach very close to Kamakura Yuigahama beach! ...Not just a normal trip though....An ultra budget trip. As you can see we have a new category now, "Japan With a Budget".
Train to Zushi station from Yokohama station and back : 660 YEN each
Drinks and snacks at the pharmacy/supermarket in the picture below: 450 YEN for the both of us (1 canned drink, 1 two liter bottle of Pocari Sweat, icecream and 1 bag of cheese snacks.)
Only 885 YEN each!
Zushi beach turned out to be a nicer beach compared to the one in Kamakura. Nicer sand and nicer water. The area near the beach had very interesting cafes, restaurants, and beautiful traditional Japanese shops.
The reason why we decided to go to Zushi instead of Kamakura is because Zushi beach was known to be calm and quiet a couple of years ago. Today, the whole beach has transformed to a party scene.
Music was playing loud at every beach house, people were shouting and screaming and people my age were partying like crazy.
What happened to the old Zushi beach?! I guess I have to go all the way to Okinawa to have that relaxing and soothing time at the beach!

Why go to FL when you have this! It's always better to go on "off-season".

The thing about Okinawa is that it's expensive to get there and stay :/
