A New Year at the Beach

Today, we went to the beach to watch the sunrise.  However, it was cloudy over the eastern horizon.  While we didn’t get to see the sunrise, we did get to see Mt. Fuji turn pink.  We also did hatsumode, or the first shrine or temple visit in the new year.  We did that on Enoshima.  After that, we walked all the way home, more than 11 km.  Below is just a preview of the photos.  I’ll be posting all of the photos on my Japan blog later.

Incredibly crowded! This is at the base of the hill. We had to go all the way to the top.

I’ll also be posting some 2014 in review posts, as well as the month in review post for December.  These will come later after I get a little bit of sleep.  I didn’t get much!

  1. There were far fewer people there when I walked up that flight of stairs!! Thanks for sharing your experience, Jay. I look forward to the rest of the pictures. 😀

    1. It was the best part of the morning, I think. The sunrise itself was quite unimpressive, considering all I saw were clouds. The rest of the pictures will be up next week. No time this weekend, unfortunately.
