I enjoyed this spring’s atmosphere on the beach of Chigasaki. Clouds fluttering on Mt. Fuji, lingering lights on the beach, surf waves, happy surfers. It was a warm and quiet evening.The full moon climbed over Enoshima in twilight time. Native American tribes called the full moon of April the Pink Moon. The afterglow of moonlight reflected on the surface of the water and the shadows of surfers.
Shonan-daira is located on the mountain border between Oiso and Hiratsuka. I walked up from JR Oiso Station for the first time in a while. The observation deck is one of the best spots in Shonan. The pink of mountain cherry trees stands out in the blue Sagami Bay. I watched the sunset over Mt. F
Spring has come to Shonan. Many Cherry Someiyoshino are in full bloom at the top of Mt. Azuma in Ninomiya, and azaleas and daffodils are also in bloom. People came to see the cherry blossoms and relaxed, and it was like a paradise. I heard woodpeckers calls and distant temple bells.
I like capes. I felt a sense of travel and visited many capes, and have many memories. My heart was broken when I was a student, and I traveled by bus along the coastline of the Izu Peninsula like Yamamoto Kotaro’s “Misaki Meguri.”. The journey around the cape continues.
Spring has come to the Koide River in Chigasaki. The early blooming Kawazu-zakura and the winter scarlet cherry trees are in full bloom. The petals are lit by the sunset like a peach blossom village. I also enjoyed the sweet smell of rape blossoms.
Haruichiban blew in Kanto yesterday, March 5. The strong wind made waves, but the sunlight was powerful. The early blooming cherry blossoms kawazu－sakura and Mimosa also began to bloom. Spring is already there.
The spring of the lunar calendar has come. Although it was still cold and the real spring did not come, the flowers of today’s season, such as Nanohana, Sazanka and daffodils, were blooming well on Mt. Azuma in Shonan Ninomiya.
Cold days continue even after Rissyun ( the first day of spring in the lunar calendar ). Rain to snow is forecast for Kanto today. I miss the coming of spring. On the Chigasaki coast, many surfers braved the bitter cold to enjoy surfing in the sunset.
New Year’s Chigasaki beach. The air was clear and sea was shining. January is already over. “Daikan” has passed and “Rissyun” is near. The buds of Mimosa, which is waiting for the arrival of spring, are getting colored.
2022 The first sunset of the year falls on the Izu Peninsula. The sky is clear and the silhouette of Mt. Fuji can be clearly seen.The volcanic smoke from Owakudani in Hakone is flying. It started this year.
