Yes, the hot summer has come back again after 2 rainy days.
When I went to Shimoda downtown I took this photo on the route #135.
Sotoura beach lies between Shirahama beach and Shimoda downtown, and it is cove like this photo.
So they normaly don't have big waves here and it is very good condition for small kids.
