2012/01/18 Shirahama Beach this morning

120118sunrise01Last weekend we closed our Pension and had a new year holiday at my wife's home in Chigasaki city.

Chigasaki and neighbor city, Fuiisawa, are bigger than Shimoda city, and there are some big shopping mall.

My wife and my daughters were excited with shopping there, but my son and I went to the movie theater to watch the movie "Kamen Rider", a Japanese TV hero.

We stayed for 3 nigths in Chigasaki and could have a very good time and were relaxed at my wife's faimly home.

By the way I took this picture on Shirahama beach this morning.

It is sunny here in Shimoda, but still cold.
