The 79th Black Ship Festival started today, and the firework display took place at Shimoda harbor tonight.
As we had only 2 guests tonight I went to Shimoda harbor to see the firework display with them and my family.
I don’t know why ,but I thought it was much better than usual.
Though it was very cold by the north wind, I walked on the seaside road this afternoon as usual.
They had a lot of snow on the top of mountains in Izu peninsula last night.
When I was walking on the seaside road this early evening I was able to see the moon above Izu Oshima island, but it was not clear by clouds.
So I didn’t expect to see the total eclipse of the moon tonight.
But when I went out to check the condition of the sky at around 9:00 PM the sky was really clear.
After that, my wife, my son and I was able to see the super blue blood moon tonight!
It ‘s now 11:00 PM, It’s raining here in Shimoda.
This morning I took my wife to the train station.
And I was able to see the sunrise on the way home, but it has been raining all day long.
When I woke up this morning the sun was just rising.
So I went up to the upper floor and took a picture.
I went to Ito city for shopping with my wife and son by car today.
I took the second picture on the way to Ito city.
We had been worrying about the weather because we have customers for 2 nights from yesterday.
But the blue sky came back and they were able to go to the walking path in Shimoda today.
It was rainy and windy in Shirahama again today. I took this video at the entrance of Shimoda city, Ogasaki Wing view spot under the rain.
We can see Shirahama beach over the Ryuuguu island.
The typhoon passed nearby last night, but we didn’t have neither strong wind nor heavy rain, and had no damage by this.
When I woke up at 5:30 AM I was able to see the sunrise glow in the morning sky.
I took this video on last Tuesday at Shimoda harbor.
This is a Shinshin-Kisen boud for Izu islands, which leaves Shimoda harbor at 9:30 AM and come back at around 4:00 PM everyday except Wednesday.
I would like to go to Kozu-shima island, one of Izu islands, by this ferry someday in the future, because we have never been there.
We had very strong south wind yesterday, but it was not windy today.
This is one of good view points on Izu peninsula, which is located between Shimoda city and Kawazu town.
If you come to Shimoda by car, you should take a break at this view point on Rout 135 of eastern side of Izu peninsula.
If it was sunny and the air was clear, you would be able to get the beautiful view of Izu seven islands and Shirahama beach.
