In addition to swimming at Civic Beach (Kenmin no Hama) in summer, there are various other tourist spots nearby. Such locations include the Kamagari Onsen Yasuragi no Yakata (a facility where you can enjoy natural hot springs) and the Kure Kamagari Observatory (a unique observatory along the coastline). One of the most popular facilities is the Kamagari Dome Cottages. The Kamagari Dome Cottages are stylish white dome-shaped cottages that give you the feeling of being on Greece’s Santorini Island.
