weeks in Japan...
2006 Éric Languillat
The plan: I go to a beautiful beach, enjoy the sunset, sleep
on the sand, wake up and leave for Kyoto.
The result: I went to Shirahama, rented a bike at the train
station, left my backpack there, bicycled along the shore, enjoyed the sunset
and this fantastic white sand beach...
But then I thought "hey, what if it's forbidden to sleep
on the beach?", so I took the bike and tried to find a more discreet
spot. I found one. It was close to a gas station (open 24 hours) so absolutely
perfect to get some food, drinks, etc.
Well, it was also close to a little lake with an active mosquitoe
population, so I did not sleep so well and so much. Which means that after
the sunset, I did not miss the sunrise either since I was already back to
the beach at 5:00.
I left it before noon and headed towards another highlight:
With an interesting collection of experiences, mosquitoe bites, and sunburns.
