Kaiyo-maru in Esashi Town!
It might be my springtime when I had been in Esashi Town. A small island called "Oshima" can be seen from the southern beach of Esashi Town as you can see on the left.
The west coast of Hokkaido Island has many beautiful and impressive pieces of scenery albeit strong cold monsoon hit the coast every year.
Yes, this is the museum on the sea "Kaiyo-maru".
This coast was swamped by herrings and the town had been so vitalized with a large catch of herring that it had been said that even the capital city Edo( current Tokyo) had not experienced the spring like Esashi Town had.
The photo taken from the beach of "Kamome-jima"(Seagull Island) is on the right. The island has many tunnels despite its small size.
"Kuki" means tons of fish swamping to the coast in Japanese.
