The peaceful and leisure air greeted me as soon as I get off the train at the Yuigahama Station. The gentle wind blowing over my face reminded me of those relaxing holiday time.

After a 5-minute walk, the Yuigahama sea spread in front of me, quiet and wide. However when the Yuigahama swimming beach is open to public, here will be filled with the people surfing and sailing. The sunset was so amazing.
