I visited Matsuyama Castle for the first time in a while. When I was living in Matsuyama, I went up to Matsuyama Castle every Sunday and saw the sunset at Iyonada. It was clear and sunny that day, and I could see the direction of Gogoshima, Suo Oshima and Sadamisaki, and the light up of Matsuyama-jo Castle reflected in the evening sky.
The winter solstice is coming soon, with the sun setting towards its southernmost tip. On the beach of Chigasaki today, the sun was shining with the clear cold air of Shiwasu. Many things happened in 2021, but it is coming to an end. I wonder what next year will be like.
