2016/05/29 Shirahama Beach today

160529beach01It was sunny and very hot here in Shirahama today.

I had good walking and excise on the seaside road looking over the blue sea under the sun this afternoon.

160529beach02I think the sea water is still a little cold, but there were a lot of foreigners who were swimming in the water.


2016/05/23 Shirahama Beach Today

160523beach01I took some pictures on the beach when I was walking on the seaside road.

160523beach01aIn these 4 days the highest temperature in Hokkaido is 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) or over we are still in May though.

It’s amazing record in Hokkaido.

On the other hand, it was sunny and very hot here in Shirahama today, but the temperature was lower than Hokkaido…

160522couple01They came from Germany and stayed at Pension Sakuraya for the 1st time.

After staying for 5 days in Tokyo they came to Shimoda.

During their stay the Black Ship Festival was taking place in Shimoda city, so they went to Shimoda to see the fireworks display on the 1st day.

And they spent almost a half of the 2nd day on the beach and went to Shimoda by walking through the mountains from Sakuraya.

Thank you very much for staying with us.

2016/05/18 Something walking in the bush

160518beach01At midnight 2 days ago, when I was working in my office I heard that something had been walking in the bush just in front of Pension Sakuraya.

So I went out from the entrance with stealthy steps, and took a picture of it.

160518beach03It was a wild boar as I guessed!

By the way, when my son went to the school this morning I left our home with him and took a walk alone on the seaside road after that.
