Marble Beach, A Beautiful Osaka Evening Spot Across From KIX
Located on the shoreline across from Kansai International Airport (KIX), Marble Beach is the perfect spot to watch planes taking off and landing.
Written by Takashi Yasui
Marble Beach, located on the shoreline across from Kansai International Airport (KIX), is approximately 900 meters long. The white marble stones studding the beach form a beautiful contrast with the blue ocean.
This place is well-known as a gorgeous spot in the evening, and families and couples often come to spend time at the beach as they please. As the sun slips beneath the horizon, the western skies get dyed in all sorts of new colors, and the mood of the ocean surface reflects those changes below.
As you stand on the beach and gaze up at the airplanes soaring into the skies from the opposite shore, the sight will lift your traveler’s spirit upward, too.
