Waves

The waves crash against the shore, turning up a frothy foam.

The Lighthouse

Across the waves, you see a lighthouse. The strip of land on which it rests does not connect to the mainland for some reason. The sea is choppy and the lighthouse is far. Do you dare to tey and swim there?

The Black Sand Beaches of Miho

There was a national holiday last Thursday, so I decided to take a ferry to Miho in Shizuoka. The place is famous for its beaches and a beautiful view of Mount Fuji if the weather is good. As the day went on, I found myself getting overly warm and ended up taking several quick dips to cool down.

Seaside

The weather has been increasing as have been my visits to the beach.

Splash splash

Today was a good day to visit the beach, so I did. The sea got a bit choppy in the afternoon, which meant for some great waves, much to the kids’ delight.

Never Satisfied

As much as I’m starting to dislike this year’s rainy season, I know the summer heat that lurks just behind it is going to be a hundred times worse.

Takashima Island

KIMG0694

In Gamagori there is an island, just off shore, housing a collection of old Shinto Shrines. It’s a small island, not even a mile across.

Besides the shrines, there are beaches around the outer edge of the island which are known for their shellfish.

After paying respects at the various shrines, it’s a quick walk back from the exit, though not necessarily and easy one.

There is an uneven path set between the hill the shrines are perched upon and the surrounding beaches. Some places are quite steep, especially for those wearing inappropriate shoes. The walk is only about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on how many pictures you stop to take or shells you decided to collect.

My friends and I took about 40 minutes for obvious reasons.
