Overcast in Katsuura Beach

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

I was fortunate to head out of Tokyo on Sunday and out to the Pacific side of Chiba.  Beaches and little seaside villages line to coast, as sun bathers, surfers, and families head down to the cooling Pacific waters.  Luckily the day was a bit overcast which kept the overall temperatures down.

In typical Japanese fashion the beaches were not that clean, and were rather rocky.  The rockiness always reminds me of Japan’s twin on the other side of the Pacific, California.  Both have been battered by strong waves and the land has been shaped by even stronger earthquakes.

This first group represent the coast.  The point where the land melts into the sea.

More to come from the little seaside towns later.
