Nagisa Ni te (渚にて ?) is a Japanese psychedelic-folk rock duo. The group's name (渚にて) is translated as "on the beach". Shinji Shibayama, the group's founder — and previous member of Idiot O'Clock and Hallelujahs — is also owner of Org Records, which has released albums from groups like Maher Shalal Hash Baz and Naoki Zushi. Tori Kudo, member of Maher Shalal Hash Baz, described the group as the following:

"Nagisa Ni te's naked Progressive rock-based worldly songs, which are sung not so much deliberately as seriously, on their love beach, now fill a blank somewhere between underground hi-fi and overground lo-fi."

Masako Takeda represents the other half of the duo, and is the long time girlfriend of Shinji Shibayama.

Shibayama and Takeda are the core members of the group, but they often employ a fluid line-up of other guest members that contribute to their music. The most consistent of these supportive members are Ikuro Takahashi, Eiji Tanaka, Naoki Zushi, Soichiro Nakamura, and occasional members of Maher Shalal Hash Baz.

The group's sound is represented by lyrics that deal largely with nature, with simple, mood-driven instrumentation. They've been compared to Pink Floyd, Tim Hardin, Tim Buckley, Nick Drake, Neil Young, and the Velvet Underground, with occasional long guitar and keyboard freak-outs, reminiscent of groups like LSD March and Acid Mothers Temple.
