2018/01/03 Shirahama Shrine

My family and I went to the nearest shrine “Shirahama Shrine” on January 3rd after busy days.

Most of Japanese go to shrine at the beginning of new year to pray for good health and happiness.

It calls “Hatsumoude” in Japanese.

This shrine is very famous for its long history more than 2,600 years.

That’s why this place always is crowded with a looooot of visitors in the morning on January 1st.

2017/12/27 Strong West Wind

Today it was windy here in Shirahama.

When we have such strong west wind it is very dangerous for the cargo ships to make the passage at Irozaki cape, the tip of Izu peninsula.

So they come to this beach to wait for the wind stops.

I walked on the seaside road taking picture the beach with cargo ships before noon, and went to the beach again after sunset.
