In April 2009, the entire Uchinada Coast as well as the Uchinada Sunset Bridge area were designated as a sanctuary for lovers. Uchinada Sunset Bridge is a 344m long cable-stayed bridge and is a landmark of Uchinada because of how it stands out when lit up at night.
Uchinada General Park
This park is located on a hill overlooking the Sea of Japan. Facilities such as an indoor heated pool, indoor multi-purpose plaza, soccer field, tennis court, baseball field, bicycle stadium, and observation deck are all located in the same area, and the large boat-shaped playground equipment is very popular with children. Nearby there is also the Uchinada Cycling Terminal where you can stay the night and/or rent a barbecue.
The main shrine was built by the rulers of the Kaga domain in 1832 and was relocated to its current location in 1889. The Obama Shrine is a venerable shrine which was recognized by the Maeda clan during their rule of the region.
Uchinada Road Station “Sunset Park”
Uchinada Road Station “Sunset Park” is located at the top of the hill Uchinada was built upon and is a great location to overlook the Kahoku Lagoon, Hakusan and the Tateyama mountains from the Sea of Japan. You can see the Sunset Bridge up close. At night the bridge is lit up from beneath. All of this has led to the road station gaining popularity as a date spot.
