They came from Holland to Japan for the 1st time and are traveling for 3 weeks.

Before they came to Shimoda the typhoon passed near Izu peninsula, so we had been worrying about them. But they came to Shimoda safety.

During their stay they went to the beach, but there were a lot of driftwood and seaweeds on the beach and the water was cloudy.

We are very sorry, but we wanted show them the clear and blue sea.

They went to Fuji lakes, Nara, Kyoto and Hiroshima after Shimoda.

Have fun and nice holidays in Japan!

2018/07/01 Beach Cleaning in Shirahama

Today the local community in Shirahama had beach cleaning from 6:30 in the morning and I participated this work, too.

There were a lot of seaweeds and woods in the sand, that had been washed onto the shore, so it was very hard to work.

By the way I was not able to see the beautiful sun light this morning because the air was cloudy, but the blue and clear sky appeared after that…

They are from England and Thailand and have visit Japan for several times before, but it was the first time to come to Shimoda.

Actually they wanted to go to a lot of places in and around Shimoda, but they didn’t have enough time.
So they went to the cave in Toji district in Shimoda city on the 2nd day.

Thank you very much for staying with us.

We are really looking forward to meeting you again.
