Sand dunes are formed when sediment from the Tenryu River, which flows through Shizuoka Prefecture, is carried inland by strong winds from the west with the tide along the coast. The sand dunes are part of the dunes of Minamien, one of the three largest dunes in Japan. In winter, the wind ripple sand pattern on the dunes created by strong winds is famous, and in spring, the 230 or so Kawazu cherry trees that bloom along the bike path at the entrance to the dunes are famous.
