Last week was a tumultuous ride for the fans of Jujutsu Kaisen, especially if your favourite character is Kento Nanami. While you can read more about what happened in that episode here, what we’re more curious about is Malaysia’s Kuantan beach, which Nanami mentioned and now has a landmark on Google Maps—Jujutsu Kaisen Beach.
Kuantan, the capital of Pahang, Malaysia, is a vibrant coastal city known for its pristine beaches like Teluk Cempedak (and now Jujutsu Kaisen Beach), and is surrounded by the lush Taman Negara National Park. The city also serves as a major trade and industrial hub and is culturally rich thanks to its markets, Malay cuisine, and historical sites.
If you’re heading to Kuantan, one of the unforgettable destinations in Malaysia, to relive Nanami’s scenes in Jujutsu Kaisen, check out these other activities you can do there and where to stay for the best beachfront views.
