HAKASHTA REEF - 墓下
Live Web Cam
Unlikely - being right in front of a massive grave yard we'll leave the live scene to those resting and those visiting.
Again unlikely - right at the edge of one of the most localized and protected points in Ibaraki.

You've gotto be keen, this place breaks rarely and there are rocky outcrops in the line up that its best not to hit.... For Sure NO DIVING off your board.
If you're not an expert its probably better to give this place a miss.
If the conditions line up and you happen to be here when they do then this place can give you a hell of a good time, just be warned again, it is not uncommon to find yourself in the water in the line up with rocks all around you (effectively you're in a hole in the rocks) - enough of the warnings !!!
General Break Information
Effectively 3 different peaks, one breaking Right towards the centre another breaking Right to the North and one in the center breaking both Left & Right.
Each of these works better or worse depending on the conditions at that time, so the only advice is to check it out if you really want to surf somewhere a bit different.
The gallery up on the hill are in the 1000's so probably good to pay your respects to the dead.
Access: By car head up the Joban highway to the Hitachi Kita interchange, then out to Route 6 and turn to the south, follow it around some winding headlands and you'll come to Kawajiri, a very well defined Left and Right that will alway have a local crew on it if its working. Keep driving south staying on the coastal road and look for the huge cemetery right next to he road.
