Golden Beach Rumoi Revisited Winter 2022

It was just last November 14, 2021, when I first visited Golden Beach Rumoi (ゴールデンビーチるもい). During my visit, it was already the last few weeks of fall. After experiencing how the snow changed how Rumoi City looked in just a few weeks. I became curious as to what Golden Beach Rumoi would look like if it was covered in snow. I wasn't able to visit Golden Beach Rumoi as I was swamped with work and was still adapting to the cold winter.

Golden Beach Rumoi details


I finally got the chance to revisit Golden Beach Rumoi last February 12, 2022. I was surprised to see how deep the snow was on the beach. I didn't expect that the snow that accumulated on the beach would reach as deep as my knee. There were parts that were deeper but I didn't dare go look at which part is the deepest. I just contented myself looking at the beach from the 10-foot-high snow pile near the main road.

For those who are not familiar, Golden Beach Rumoi is the main tourist attraction of Rumoi City in Hokkaido. It draws in hundreds if not thousands of visitors every summer. It is also a popular camping ground and surfing spot to some. As for me, I just enjoy the cool breeze and the smell of the sea whenever I visit.

As I mentioned, I wanted to see how different Golden Beach Rumoi would look in winter so I revisited it last February 12, 2022, which was my 103rd day here in Japan as an ALT under the JET Programme. In a way, Golden Beach Rumoi looked magical with the snow covering its brown sand. Of course, it is prohibited to take a dip in the waters and I didn't dare to do it too so I just contented myself with its unique winter beauty that even my smartphone camera can't capture.

Overall, Golden Beach Rumoi is one of those places in Rumoi where I want to bring my family to spend a weekend. I would also want them to see its winter beauty someday soon.
