This photograph is the sunrise of the Umezawa Coast of Ninomiya- machi, Naka-gun, Kanagawa Prefecture at the morning in April 16. Because the sunrise was at 5:08 I woke up at 3:00 a.m. and went out at 3:30. I ordinarily would see the first sunrise of the year here, but I did not come this new year. There are those who enjoy a barbecue and swim in the sea and fish here. Of course, it is in summer that they swim. To tell you the truth, this is a well-kept secret probably I think. Do you like fishing? There is the wharf which, sticking out from the shore, called “Umetei” where you might catch sardines or girellas or black porgies or mackerels or various kinds of fishes. Whatever I may say, parking is free there. And within about 300M at the wharf there is National Route 1 that runners run up for “A New Year Ekiden”. So I watch the Tokyo-Hakone collegiate ekiden race almost every year. It is an annual event for me. But what the heck! Our University could not entry it only for this time. That’s why I did not go to see it. Except at the moment of the first sunrise of the new year there are not many people who come here. As I can go by car from my home within an hour, it is very convenient for me. I'll be there tomorrow morning.
