Matama Coast is known to be the only location in Oita Prefecture where an uninterrupted sunset on the horizon can be viewed. The scene at dusk here has been selected as one of Japan's 100 Most Beautiful Sunset.
Even during the lowest tide, the coastal beach is left with just enough ocean water that it creates mudflats in the region. This provides a perfect and picturesque moment where the water's surface is mystical and golden. Many visitors and photographers flock to the Coast for this stunning scenic beauty.
