The Noumizo Waterfall
This was the back door to the inn where we had lunch. The front door was more ornate, but not as interesting.
Rocks were leveled out to create a platform for mounting a cannon.
Waves washing over the cannon rock.
A tunnel was dug out through the mountain in 1660 to change the water course in order to make more room for rice paddies.
The inn where we had lunch is a favorite hang out for artists. They had paintings covering the walls of the dinning room. Some of them were very old. This was one of my favorites.
Shirahama (white beach) resort town, seen from Noujimazaki.
Seishi getting cold while waiting for me.
In the morning the light shinning through the tunnel creates a beautiful reflection.
The fresh aji sashimi was delicious!
A 30 second long exposure, with the cannon rock in the foreground.
There used to be 3 canons on this beach. This is #3.
Wild grass growing through the rocks at Noujimazaki.
The other direction. Another cannon mount can be seen on the left.
Another 30 second exposure. I wish I had tried different views, but I have to take the dark filter off in order to recompose, and it was so windy, I was afraid I would drop it.
The southern tip of the Bousuo peninsula.
The lighthouse at Noujimazaki is the second oldest lighthouse in Japan.
