The impact of the removal of a river mouth bar as a measure against river mouth closure to the surrounding coasts was investigated, taking the Hota coast as an example. Also, on this coast, landfilling was extensively carried out to build a coastal road along the coastline, resulting in the narrowing of the natural sandy beach. These anthropogenic factors affected the overall shoreline on a pocket beach, devastating the natural coastal environment. We investigated the effects of these impacts using aerial photographs and field observations.
