Shirahama shrine festival is held for 3 days from October 28th every year.
The local children take part in Kodomo Mikoshi (portable shrine by children).
They carried Mikoshi and walked around the town of Shirahama all day long yesterday.
They came from Australia and stayed at Pension Sakuraya for 3 nights.
It was the second time to visit Japan, but they came to Shimoda for the 1st time.
During their stay they walk around the beach and relaxed in their Japanese room.
They went to Izukogen and Kyoto after check-out.
Thank you for staying with us.
I took some pictures on Sotoura beach and Shirahama beach after I took my daughter to the school as usual.
We had very strong west wind again today, but the air was clear and the blue sea was shinning under the sun.
Sotoura Beach is located between Shimoda city and Shirahama Beach, and the beach is shaped of a cove.
So they usually don’t have big waves and it would be popular to the families with small children in summer.
