2019/01/18 God Ray

As I had to go to Shimoda this early morning I went to the beach to take photos of sunrise after that…

In this season the sunrise time is around 7:45AM. I wanted to take photos of the morning sun which rises above the norizon, but there were a lot of clouds…..

However I was able to take photos of God Ray. (We, Japanese call this Angel’s ladder.)

2019/01/14 View of Sunrise from Shirahama Beach

As my wife went to Chigasaki city in Kanagawa prefecture to participate the new year party of the ballet school and company which she belonged to when she was young I took her to the train station this early morning. And I went to the beach to take photos of the sunrise after that.

I wasn’t able to see the sunrise above the horizon, but it was so beautiful!

2019/01/09 Walking to Sotoura Beach Looking over Izu Seven Islands

I walked to the point where we can see Sotoura beach this afternoon as usual.

Sotoura Beach located between Shirahama beach and the town of Shimoda is very popular with families with children because they don’t have big waves.

And Mihogasaki cape which is between Shirahama beach and Sotoura beach has great view of Izu seven islands and Amagi mountains.

2019/01/07 Clouds above the Sea

I walked on the seaside road this afternoon as usual.

When I started walking I saw the clouds above Izu Oshima island, so I went to the top of the hill behind Sakuraya to take photos.

By the way when I was cooking for my family at around 4:30 PM I saw the beautiful sunset on the western mountain. So I took this photo from the 2nd floor of Sakuraya.

As our customers were going to Tsumekizaki cape after check out I took them there by my car because I had to go to Shimoda for shopping this morning.

A looooooot of narcissus flowers and Aloe flowers were bloomng under the blue sky.
